I think and say „Well done Julia Gillard!“. More politicians should have the guts to speak up against sexism.

I know this is a huge potential of discussion. I actually would like to see more (german) female politicians who stand more to womens rights than they are acting now. And sometimes have the power to react like Gillard.
