"Lindy Chamberlain was thrown into the harsh spotlight of the media in 1980, when her baby, Azaria was taken from their tent near Uluru. Forensic mistakes were amplified by human frailties, and Lindy was wrongfully convicted of her baby’s murder. This example of the unrelenting and elusive expectations of the way mothers should conduct themselves is reminiscent of the witchcraft trials of another era.  

That Lindy has conducted herself with such grace and acceptance following this ordeal is truly inspiring. "
