Julia Gillard to take ground-breaking misogyny speech to the stage

Ten years ago, Australia’s then-prime minister, Julia Gillard, gave a speech in parliament that would echo long after her leadership came to an end.

“I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. I will not,” said Gillard, in response to the opposition leader, Tony Abbott, accusing her of sexism.

“And the government will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. Not now, not ever.”
