Bigger than Julia Gillard: The discrimination against women in public life and leadership positions

 

Below is a post from Women’s Health in the North.

A video montage of the sexist and misogynistic comments made about former PM Julia Gillard has been put together. We thought it is a great demonstration to anyone who denies women in public life experience sexist behaviour and different standards because of gender.

We know that gender inequity, stereotypes and sexism are the root causes of Violence Against Women and pay inequity.This needs to be a community conversation to break down gender discrimination and make sure women can participate fully in all aspects of life. It is so much bigger than just one person.
