Jennie George

Biography

Australian labor union executive. Italian born, she was an Australian immigrant with her family when she was two years old. Though she had a close relationship with her mom, George was a rebellious teenager. She met her future husband, communist Paddy George, at 16 and they married four years later. They had a happy marriage for 12 years that ended with his death of cancer in 1980, a year that Jennie called the worst in her life.

Entering politics, George became the first woman executive officer of Australia's leading union, The ACTU (Australian Council of Trade Unions) and the first female president, 1995. Her public office is marked with controversy and often, emotional temperament.
