A national publication calling on the reclamation of respect to Australia’s democracy and untangling the sexist and gendered attacks on Australia’s first female Prime Minister.
In September 2012, the Victorian Women’s Trust published A Switch in Time: Restoring Respect to Australian Politics to provide a commentary that assists women and men across the country to articulate their concerns about the negative currents affecting our political discourse.
