Shona: Every Bajan woman should watch this video

The next time Owen S. Arthur gets going, we should call Julia Gillard

“Let’s go through the opposition leader’s repulsive double standards when it comes to misogyny and sexism…”

In a parliamentary debate, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called opposition leader Tony Abbott a misogynist and a hypocrite. Abbott had requested that the government remove Peter Slipper as speaker following the release of offensive text messages he sent referring to female genitalia. In response Prime Minister Gillard lets fly at Mr. Abbott – who looks like he wishes he had kept his mouth shut.

I had to watch this video twice.

Also look at the proportion of women elected representatives in the Australian Parliament!
