Summers, Anne: Politics of gender

Summers, Anne

More in anger: the politics of gender in Australia in 2013 (Second Emily’s List Oration, Canberra, 19 June 2013)

Looks at the representation of women in federal politics, says more should be done and proposes reserving 50 per cent of electorates for women. Meanwhile, there should be more targeting of women in political campaigning. Also looks in detail at attitudes to women in politics, particularly as seen in the treatment of Julia Gillard.
