"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.” - Julia Gillard, October 2012.You can see and listen to the speech here on Youtube, if you're interested. Take note of Abbott - smirking and smug at the beginning, becoming increasingly uncomfortable as the speech goes on. True to form, the Australian media criticised her speech unmercifully, but overseas media was overwhelmingly positive and supportive and the video went viral.
All this is a preamble to what I found on Stuff.co.nz this morning - this wonderful musical version of her famous speech. Composer Rob Davidson has made a choral piece of her words. It is wonderful, wonderful!
