“Australian prime minister Julia Gillard “played her best hand with a brilliant attack on the Conservative opposition leader, Tony Abbott, accusing him of being sexist and a misogynist,” the Telegraph reports.” (via Political Wire)
As it is, I am unable to comment on the details of this situation, as I’m under-read in Australian politics, but the way Ms. Gillard commands the room for fifteen. whole. minutes on the topic of misogyny and sexism is totally fucking incredible.
“Apparently he’s woken up […] and he’s gone, ‘Oh dear. There’s this thing called sexism. Oh my lord, there’s this thing called misogyny.’”
