Mary Robinson served as the seventh, and first female, President of Ireland from 1990 to 1997, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, from 1997 to 2002. She first rose to prominence as an academic, barrister, campaigner and member of the Irish Senate. She is widely regarded as a transformative figure for Ireland, and the Irish presidency, revitalising and liberalising a previously conservative, low-profile political office.
