Where, oh where, are the women of calibre?

Highly recommended reading!

Random Observations of Life

There must be something really strange happening in the Liberal Party (and, I suggest, the coalition overall). Is there really NOT more than ONE woman of sufficient calibre in the Liberal Party to rate a cabinet position? The ONE woman that did make it has, effectively, been demoted. Julie Bishop was the Deputy Leader of the Opposition and could reasonably have expected to be Deputy Prime Minister, but no, that position is now filled by yet another man. Well, there was a choice of 17 men in Cabinet other than the PM himself!

Tony Abbott made a big song and dance about ensuring we financially enabled “women of calibre” to be able to breed. Clearly breeding is much more important for women than being involved in RUNNING THE COUNTRY!!! Oh, dear, I forgot the ironing: breeding and ironing.

    Gone are those pesky, self orientated females, back to your kitchens, and bedrooms. Feminism is gone, its manisuims now. Throw out those cumbersome sexual harassment laws, we should be able to look and make comments in peace without fear of being seen as sexist and perverts, or if that is what we are, we should celerbate our difference and rejoice that we can finally hang the nudies back up on every wall and toliet in the workplace. Welcome to Australia, Welcome to mans world. We run the cave, now cook my dinner. Oh yeah and um …Julie sort out those pesky Indonesians for us will you dear.
