Address by Leanne Smith, director of the Whitlam Institute

Gough Whitlam’s government passed a record number of bills into law, enacting reform in nearly every field during a tumultuous period that ended dramatically with Australia’s first and only dismissal of a Prime Minister by the Governor-General. Whitlam’s government was responsible for shaping much of the institutional, legislative and cultural foundation of modern Australia.
