15 Minutes of AWESOME, brought to you by the Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard
Julia Gillard needs to come to the US and bring her pocket full of whoop ass.
Recently the Aussie Prime Minister had enough of Tony Abbott’s EXTREMELY misogynistic comment’s and sexual harassment of a gay cabinet member via text’s.
Julia gave a 15 minute passionate and some what scathing speech to the House of Representative’s. This made everyone pay attention except Abbott who think’s he’s special.
At the lovely Jezebel.com, they broke down some of the loveliest quotes from the Prime Minister. Here’s a few gem’s;
I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man, I will not. Not now, not ever. What i won’t stand for, what I will never stand for is the leader of the opposition peddling a double standard, a standard he has not set for members of his own front bench.
If he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia he doesn’t need a motion in the house of Representatives, he needs a mirror.
I was very offended personally the Leader of the Opposition said abortion is the easy way out.
I was offended by the sexism, by the misogyny of the Leader of the Opposition cat calling across this table at me as I sit here as prime minister [saying], ‘If the prime minister wants to make an honest woman of herself…’ something that would never have been said to any man sitting in this chair.
I was offended when he stood next to a sign that described me as a ‘man’s bitch.’
He has said, ‘If it’s true that men have more power, generally speaking, than women, is that a bad thing?’ [and] ‘What if men, by physiology or temperament, are more adapted to exercise authority or to issue command?’
He can apologise for standing next to signs [about me] saying, ‘Ditch the Witch.’
Now he is looking at his watch [which Abbott was] because apparently a woman’s spoken too long.
Here is the video and the AMAZING women right’s speech I cannot stop smiling at. GO JULIA!! (compliments of ABCNews on Youtube)
The Ginger’s have it. What can I say, you do NOT want to invoke redhead rage.
