Politics and Equity
Once upon a time in the not too distant past a gathering of Australian State/Territory Premiers and the Prime Minister looked like this image below.
Here we are in May 2014.
We have taken so many steps backwards. One wonders just how difficult is it to have gender equity in political leadership in this country?
The Commonwealth Government Cabinet around 2011
and then in 2014. notice anything?
I rest my case. It good to be reminded what can be achieved – and – how easily achievements can be undone by a bunch of idiots. This can and does happen in other aspects of life, not just in national politics. So if you care for those around you – strongly suggest that we all need to remain aware and be on guard.
