Gillard misogyny speech revisited

Today I felt like going back to where prime minster Julia Gillard, Australia's first woman prime minister, tore Tony Abbott to shreds in parliament.

You know when everyone is thinking something but there's only one person who actually has the guts to say what everyone's thinking? Well this is one of those times.

One of the most interesting things about this is the look on Tone's face (then opposition leader). He starts with the laughing it all off manly thing, but by the end of it looks like he's been slapped in the face by Gillard.

This is truly a famous moment in Australian politics :)
