Posted October 15, 2019 17:18:10 Australia’s ambassador to Britain, Elizabeth O’Neill, said today that the next leader of Australia must be female.
“The challenge for a female Prime Minister of Australia is the challenge for any female Prime Ministership,” O’Neil said in a press conference.
“It is also an important task for our country as a whole and I believe it is imperative that we all recognise and celebrate the contribution that female leadership can make in our democracy.
She said that Australia must continue to pursue policies that encourage and support women and their participation in the workplace, in politics, in business and in society.
O’Neill said that, in recent years, there have been a number of examples of female leaders in Australia and the world who have been successful in building stronger and more inclusive communities.”
I think we need to continue to celebrate the leadership of women across our country, and especially to acknowledge and celebrate women who have taken leadership roles in other countries,” she said.
However, the Australian Government is not endorsing a female prime minister, and the issue of gender is a sensitive one for the government.”
Women are going to have to do something’: ‘We’re not going to accept that this will be a status quo’The spokeswoman added that there were a number “who feel that the status quo is not working for them”.””
The Government has been clear that we do not support a female leader, that we are open to considering a female candidate in the 2020 election.”‘

“The Prime Minister has said that women are going at the same rate as men.
But he has also said that in this country, we’re not seeing that,” the spokeswoman said.”
That’s not true.
I think that’s why we’re taking the steps we’re going to take to ensure that women in politics are not marginalised and that we’re seeing the most women who are elected and elected with a positive record in their communities.”
Otago University Associate Professor David Schindler said that the “problem with the gender issue” was not so much the issue, but that it was the way in which we are talking about it.
“It’s about a narrative that women aren’t really having the voice that they deserve, he said.
He said that there is an emphasis on the “strong women” in Australia’s political system, which he said “does not work”.”
‘I think it’s just a matter of time’Otaku University Associate Prof Dr Lisa Wilkinson said that she did not think the focus on gender would change “until there is a change in the way the country is run”.””
That’s why the idea that women should be treated like a class is a failure of imagination.”
‘I think it’s just a matter of time’Otaku University Associate Prof Dr Lisa Wilkinson said that she did not think the focus on gender would change “until there is a change in the way the country is run”.
“It would be a good thing for us to do that and I think it is just a question of time,” she told AM, adding that the Government “does recognise that the problem with the government’s gender policy is not so very much the gender of its leader but rather the gender in society at large.”
“But it does recognise that it has got to be done,” she added.
‘Australia has had women before’: ‘It’s an important question for our society’In 2016, the United Nations released a report that noted that Australia’s economy is one of the fastest growing in the world, and that women make up more than half of the population.
O’Neil acknowledged that Australia was “in the midst of a transformation”, and said that it needed to “re-focus” on the countrys women.
“The key message that I want to deliver is that Australia has had female leaders before,” she continued.
“But the key message is that it’s an integral part of our democratic system that you can’t forget that women have been leaders before and they’ve always been part of the fabric of our society.”
Women are just as capable as men to be leaders.
We can be leaders of women.
