Premiers past: Joan Kirner

By Andrew Dodd


The first female premier of Victoria, Kirner found herself at the top of a disintegrating government after the resignation of John Cain in 1990. She sold the State Bank, battled the ALP factions and was hounded by the Murdoch press before ultimately presiding over the massive defeat that marked the arrival of Jeff Kennett
