"Who is a woman in your field that you look up to?"
"There are some wonderful women out there, both here at the ANU, and further afield. I’ve been so inspired by the ideas and writings of three women in particular, who are all professors in North America: Nancy Peluso, Tania Li and Paige West. Somehow they have juggled families, relationships, remote field work in the Asia-Pacific and have still pushed the boundaries of scholarship and praxis. Their careful and rigorous work gives me much to look up to!" - Environment and development scholar, and an Inspiring Woman of CAP, Dr Sarah Milne.

"What inspired you to get into your field of research and why?"
"I was at high school and at the time Australia and Japan were involved in a big trade dispute. It was a dispute about long-term contracts for sugar. It was on the radio, day after day, and I thought that Australia could really use more people with trade negotiation skills who also have language ability. At the time I was studying Japanese at high school and I thought that was something I would like to pursue as a career." - Socio-legal scholar and Inspiring Woman of CAP, Professor Veronica Taylor
