Summary
An extraordinary story of the hard-fought rise and dramatic fall of a visionary Australian Prime Minister during one of the country's most turbulent eras. With its scandals and political deaths, dizzying highs and terrible lows, prime minister Gough Whitlam's rise and fall reads like Shakespeare. Heroic to some, flawed to others, his changes still echo today. Once elected Prime Minister, Whitlam implemented changes at breakneck speed, and pressed on with major health and education reforms. Whitlam appointed a government advisor on women's affairs and introduced a Racial Discrimination Act. He invested in sewerage systems, motorways, childcare centres, housing for low-income families, no-fault divorce laws and supporting mothers' benefits
