Compass - Vale Patricia Brennan
Explores the life and work of Dr Patricia Brennan who led the campaign for the ordination of women priests in Australia's Anglican Church, and won.
Front and centre of this Compass tribute is an interview with Patricia, filmed less than three months before she died aged 66 of pancreatic cancer. A former missionary doctor come feminist theologian, Patricia is best known for her very public role in the fight for the ordination of women in Australia - a country which now has 400 Anglican women priests, 200 deacons, and two women bishops.
What's less known about Patricia is that she was also a specialist in forensic medicine, and most of her work in recent years dealt with sexual violence against women and children.
A moving biopic of an extraordinary woman of our time.
