When Jenni Meaney entered the ABC in Sydney in March 1980 as a camera assistant, she was the only woman working in camera or sound. As Jenni recalls in this interview with Ina Bertrand in 1993 the lack of a women’s toilet in News provided an unexpected benefit by propelling her into more prestigious work on documentaries.
