Pat Jarrett became a household name in Melbourne in the fifties and sixties as editor of the women's pages of the daily Sun News Pictorial. Yet it was a role she took on reluctantly. She had no time for the 'piddling social stuff' that dominated the work of the old 'butterfly department' at the Sun. Under her guidance, endless lists of who was who at the latest high-society function steadily gave way to articles on issues affecting women's everyday lives. Contraception, abortion, equal pay. Women's Liberation - all found space in Pat's pages, where they were addressed with her characteristic blend of forthrightness and humour. 188 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN: 0522847250. ISBN/EAN: 9780522847253. Inventory No: 252322.
