Gillard on Misogyny

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is the country’s first female leader, and she showed this week that she won’t stand for misogyny. In a male-dominated profession such as politics, she has shown considerable audacity to pull the leader of the Australian opposition up for his inappropriate statements towards her and women in general. In this 15-minute video, see her confront him with his own statements- which include that an under representation of women in parliament is not “a bad thing”. Yikes.
