Julia Gillard on that speech

Julia Gillard on that speech

Julia Gillard will be remembered for many things, but her misogyny speech has a special place in Australian political history. The electrifying speech, which ricocheted around the world from the moment it was delivered in the federal parliament on October 9, 2012, was re-broadcast last week when Australia’s first female Prime Minister spoke on passion, politics and power. “It came from a place, not a screaming, shouting place, but a place of centred cool anger. I knew it was a hard-hitting speech because I saw the opposition drop their heads,” she said of the speech. “Hopefully that speech is remembered as an artefact from a time when things used to happen in a gendered way in politics … and looked on as a curiosity,” Ms Gillard said, adding that she was more optimistic about equality for women now than ever before.
