Discover the first female president of Ireland, Mary Robinson!

Mary Robinson grew up with four brothers – something which gave her an interest in women’s rights from a young age! She was a brilliant student and worked hard, becoming the youngest professor of law in Ireland. From law to politics, the presidency to the United Nations, Mary has spent her life fighting for equality, human rights and climate justice.
