While politicians on both sides have gone out of their way to put their best pro women foot forward, is it anything more than spin? Is there any substance in policies on either side that appeals to women? As for the behaviour of our political leaders, is it actually supposed to instil confidence? From where I'm sitting, it all looks pretty disappointing.
Men dominate the media, both creating it, and the people it covers. Is it any wonder it cynically dismissed Gillard’s irritation at sexism?
I wasn't personally affronted by that particular text message in the context of all the alleged indiscretions of the former Speaker. But it is entirely understandable that many people were.
On Tuesday our world changed. Julia Gillard decided she couldn't take it any more. And she let Abbott have it. refused to be silent in the face of his hypocrisy.
I was delighted to read in The Age that Margie Abbott has publicly declared her husband to be a feminist. A result, she says, of raising three daughters and being surrounded by strong women. All of whom have dutifully trotted around in his wake in the last few days touting his previously well-hidden feminist credentials.
Alan Jones' destroying the joint spray ignored the importance of getting more Pacific Islander women into positions of power.
