Yassmin Abdel-Magied on marriage, her upbringing, and more

Yassmin’s father encouraged her to study engineering: “His traditional masculinity didn’t mean I was told there was one way to be a woman, as he was always supportive of me studying science, maths and tech subjects.”


The LNP, Murdoch’s Sky and News Newscorp drove this gifted Queenslander of the Year 2015 from the country. Ensuring the loss to Australia of one of it’s most educated, intelligent, and talented citizens. They achieved it with their White, Nationalistic, Anti- Muslim, Misogynistic, Jingoistic, and Racist rants ever publicly focused on an Aussie and shamed us all. Those Neanderthal trolls robbed the country of a role model for Australia’s future with their hate and disregard for basic Human Rights. Sorry, Yassmin.
