Mary Robinson, the world famous human-rights campaigner and former President of Ireland, joins us to discuss her extraordinary life upon publication of her memoir 'Everybody Matters'.
Mary Robinson first rose to prominence as a barrister and was a member of the Irish Senate from 1969-1989. She has since become the first female President of Ireland and served as the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights between 1997-2002.
For the first time she reveals what lies behind the vision, strength and determination that have helped her to achieve so much for human rights around the globe.
