The story of Mary Robinson is one that has always had justice, fairness, and equality at its core, and maybe it was this more than anything that saw her become the first woman president of Ireland in 1990. Not only did Mrs. Robinson defeat the both the Fianna Fail and Fianna Gael candidates in, but she did so from an independent platform supported by Ireland's Labour party. Once in place, she transformed the role of the presidency, not willing to just stand as a conservative figure head, she took a direct stance and moved the role of Ireland's leader into an active Liberal arena.

Long before her rise to the presidency Mary graduated with honours from her Law studies in Trinity College Dublin in 1967 . That same year she fulfilled the role of auditor of the Dublin University Law Society and in her first address she advocated removing the prohibition of divorce in the Irish Constitution, eliminating the ban on the use of contraceptives, and decriminalising homosexuality and suicide

Mary Robinson left her position as Irish president two months before the end of her term in order to take up the position of High Commissioner for Human Rights at the United Nations where she served for five years, advocating always for acceptance and awareness for all.

When asked once about her election as the first woman to hold the Irish presidency is said;

"I was elected by the women of Ireland, who instead of rocking the cradle, rocked the system."
-Mary Robinson, 1990
