Nine Lives for Our PlanetJohn Watts
“I first became aware of this project through my enormous admiration for one of the subjects, water activist Anne Kennedy. However, through reading John's words, I have discovered a further bunch of terrific women who otherwise I may never have met. Through these pages we discover Sue Higginson, the environmentalist/law school medallist and now Member of the NSW Parliament; Jo Evans, the daughter of British migrant parents who discovers the alternate lifestyle; Shay Dougall, the occupational health and safety expert; Simone Marsh, the whistleblower; Judi Summers, who battled alcohol and drug abuse to end up an anti-fracking heroine; Linda Gill, one of the forces behind Knitting Nannas; Carly Phillips, fearless on the frontline; and Dom Jacobs, the “accidental activist” from a Christian background. Each one of these women has faced great difficulties in their lives and heroically overcome them.” Meredith Burgmann AM.
