Susan Hawthorne on Julia Gillard
Added on Tuesday, July 06, 2010
Susan Hawthorne – political scientist, author, poet and Spinifex director – has written a blog post for the Women's Media Centre about Julia Gillard and her own 'cautious optimism' about our new PM:
Julia Gillard is shaking some long-held norms however, since not only is she female, she’s also single... She is also not religious, a distinct difference from former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. One doesn’t hear her speak of herself as a feminist, but many of her assumptions and actions are clearly based on an underlying feminist worldview.
