Summary

Sharon Mullin was briefly a political activist who contested the New South Wales Legislative Assembly election for Bathurst in 1995 and for the House of Representatives seat of Calare in 1996. She ran for the Greens because of her belief in the need to balance social and economic needs with environmental protection, and because she deplored the lack of women in political life. At the time of the campaign, Sharon Mullin was studying architecture, having previously been a secondary school teacher.
