Main article content

Ita Buttrose AO, OBE, was not only Australian of the Year in 2013, she is also a legendary media editor, businesswoman, best-selling author and committed community and welfare contributor.

She discusses how growing up with brothers drove her to prove that whatever they could do, she could do too. This set the stage to break new ground for females in the Australian media industry.

Ita also talks about how she is still committed to advocate for social and health issues in Australia, and uses her national profile to raise awareness for breast cancer, HIV/AIDS and prostate cancer.
