Australian Prime Minister calls out the Opposition Leader on his sexism

“Julia Gillard, the Australian prime minister, launched a spectacular attack on the opposition leader Tony Abbott, calling him a misogynist and a sexist.”

This was being talked about all over tumblr this morning and the video is Julia Gillard’s speech calling out Tony Abbott for being sexist and hypocritical. All I can say is, bravo! She made him look absolutely ridiculous and I definitely think this could go along with “The Bitch and the Ditz” article we read earlier on.

Watch the video (I know it’s long but trust me it’s entertaining!) and let me know what you think!


  1. I really like this video. It demonstrates the strength and the determination that she has to be heard. She is not willing to let the leader of the opposition engage in sexism. I like how she brings in quotes specifically from the man to prove her point. She isn’t trying to overpower him, but she is trying to show that he should not be saying contradictory ideas about sexism. She is stepping up for all the women in Australia. I did find it hard to hear sometimes because a lot of people were shouting over her.
