  1. So very, very happy. Even just as a step towards other women being elected Prime Minister in the future, my two year old daughter doesn’t understand how significant it is that she is living at this time (obviously, I mean she’s two :D) but I am so glad I have a daughter to be able to show her on the TV, at least, a great example of equality and a coming of age for Australian politics.

    • I’ve heard lots of stories about teenage girls already being inspired that they might one day reach such heights. It’s a wonderful counterpoint to raunch culture and the trivialising of girls in the media these days.
