Transcript of an interview with Christine Sharp
Name: Library Board of Western AustraliaPlace: [Perth, W.A.] Year: 2009
Shelf Location: MP/SHA 2009
Oral History
Interviewer: Ron Chapman
"Dr Christine (Chrissy) Sharp was interviewed in August and September 2006 for the Parliamentary Oral History Project and the J.S. Battye Library of West Australian History. She was born in London in 1947 and travelled widely before settling in Western Australia in 1973. In 1974 and 1975 Chrissy worked as a journalist for the ABC and during the 1970s she was a prominent activist within Western Australia's burgeoning forest movement. Awarded her PhD in 1983 from Murdoch University in political philosophy, Chrissy served on the Donnybrook-Balingup Shire Council and was a member of the South West Development Authority's Advisory Committee. In 1989 she was appointed by the Dowding Labor Government to be the first woman member of the Environmental Protection Authority. Chrissy had been a member of The Greens (WA) since its foundation in 1990 and in 1996 she was elected as the Greens MLC for the South West Region of Western Australia. The interview also provides reflections on the internal dynamics taking place within the Greens during the controversial one vote, one value debate."
