I made a decision when I started this blog that I would not, no matter what the provocation, discuss politics. However, Australia's first female PM is just too exciting. Julia Gillard.
I was astonished at the emotional impact. I thought that in 2010 having a woman in the top job would be the same as having a man, ie it's just a person, a politician. But the truth is our first female PM is an emotional experience. We're proud to have a sheila in the top job.
