Australia’s Prime Minister Gillard Labels Opposition Leader Abbott A Misogynist

I’m fairly certain everyone has already shown you this – but in case (and, of course, as the token Australian on the network):

Best Thing You’ll See All Day: Australia’s Female Prime Minister Rips Misogynist a New One in Epic Speech on Sexism –

In an impassioned 15-minute smackdown in front of the house of Representatives, the country’s first female leader gave a scathing speech calling out opposition leader Tony Abbott’s extremely misogynistic comments, actions, views on abortion and single women, all while pointing in his face. She basically ripped him a new asshole.

I’m still not pleased with her political performance overall, mind – gay rights… chaplains… But, still. Tides of change in Australia? #DestroyTheJoint
