Why were people so critical of Julia Gillard when she lied about the carbon tax, was it because she was a woman and men don’t like the idea of women leaders?
It stands out because Tony Abbott has lied nine times, as stated in the federal parliament by the opposition and by political commentators through the media, yet on talk-back radio shows and by comments made by readers through letters to the editor columns, there is very little criticism of his lies.
It stands out that if you are a woman politician you will be criticised and ridiculed because of gender prejudice.
Is it because of the jealousy that men have when women prove that they are capable of doing their work or are they frightened of women who possess leadership qualities?
