Julia Gillard Lashes Abbott In Slipper Debate; Misogyny Speech

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has attacked Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, labelling him a misogynist, in a parliamentary debate over the future of Speaker Peter Slipper.

Gillard spoke on a motion from Abbott to remove Slipper from the post he stood aside from in April.

The Prime Minister began by saying: “I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. I will not. And the Government will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. Not now, not ever.”

She said of Abbott: “Because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn’t need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror.”
