Julia Gillard, Australia's first female Prime Minister, may have achieved a tremendous amount during her three years in power. But it was not, the 532 pieces of legislation she steered through a hung parliament that seems to have cemented her legacy, but one particular speech.
In October 2012, Labor Party leader Gillard confronted leader of the opposition Liberal party, Tony Abbott, in an impassioned speech about "sexism and misogyny" in the workplace.
"The Leader of the Opposition says that people who hold sexist views and who are misogynists are not appropriate for high office. Well I hope the Leader of the Opposition has got a piece of paper and he is writing out his resignation. Because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn't need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror. That's what he needs," Gillard said in 2012.
