About The Book

How Powerful We Are is an attempt to counter the re-writing of how Australia achieved one of the most significant social changes in a generation. And at a time when the news is written for clicks and elections are fought with three-word slogans, it's crucial to preserve some record of events that isn't 'fake news' or political spin.

Sally Rugg is one of Australia's most influential campaigners for social change and How Powerful We Are is her manifesto for championing what you believe is right.

Through the lens of the successful marriage equality campaign Sally spearheaded, and the work she continues to do now, you can learn just what it takes to bring attention to the things that matter to you most. Filled with insights into the modern campaigning landscape, How Powerful We Are is here to inspire you to stand up for what you believe in.
