Writer, broadcaster and filmmaker Anne Deveson has been on the leading edge of social change throughout her varied career. Through her television and radio documentaries, books and articles, and her membership of numerous boards and organisations, she has illuminated social issues and influenced policy in areas from poverty and aging to child abuse and disability. She is perhaps best known for her work on mental illness - an area she became involved in after her son developed schizophrenia. In this interview, she recounts many of the challenges she has faced, particularly as a young “career woman” in 1950s Australia.
