Jenny Macklin was born in Brisbane, Queensland, on 29 September 1953, and is a politician for the Australian Labor Party. Jenny Macklin studied in both Japan and Melbourne, eventually graduating from the University of Melbourne with an honours degree in economics.

In 1976, Jenny Macklin was employed at the Australian National University as a researcher, where she remained for two years before leaving to work as a specialist economics researcher at the Parliamentary Library in Canberra. She remained in that role through to 1981 and then returned to Melbourne as the Research Coordinator during 1981-1985 at the Labor Resource Centre. In 1985, Jenny Macklin took on the role of an adviser to the Victorian Minister for Health, before leaving to pursue a career as the director of the National Health Strategy from 1990 to 1993. She was then promoted to director of the Australian Urban and Regional Development Review for the period of 1993-1995.

Jenny Macklin was then elected into Parliament and became a member of the Opposition Shadow Cabinet. Whilst working as a Shadow Minister, Jenny Macklin took on several portfolios, including Shadow Minister for Aged Car, Social Security and the Status of Women. In 1998 she was appointed Shadow Minister for Health.

In 2001, Jenny Macklin was the first woman to be elected Deputy Leader in any Australian party. Whilst working as Deputy Leader she also took on the role of Shadow Minister for Education. In 2006, Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard ran as a partnership for Leader and Deputy Leader of the Australian Labor Party. When Kevin Rudd won leadership, Jenny Macklin stepped down from her role of Deputy Leader rather than competing against Julia Gillard for the position. Instead, Macklin was appointed Shadow Minister for Families and Community Services, as well as Shadow Minister for Indigenous Affairs and Reconciliation.
