Ruth Matchett
Ruth Matchett discusses acceptance of her as Director General, as the department had had a number of female ministers and it had been branded as a women's area. She discusses instances of sexual discrimation in her career, such as when she was regional director of the Department of Children's Services in Rockhampton, and she had not been entitled to the housing provided for that position, which instead went to her assistant – a married man with children, which effectively put his salary package higher than hers.
