A Podcast of One's Own with Julia Gillard
Annabel Crabb on the history, power and influence of women in Australian politics
On the back of her hit television show 'Ms Represented', documenting the last 100 years since women were elected to the Australian parliament, much loved journalist Annabel Crabb talks with Julia about the history, power and influence of women in Australian politics, and what she has seen to be one of the most exciting developments in politics in the last few years.
In this episode, Annabel also explores her own career as a journalist from young cadet at the Adelaide Advertiser to a stalwart of the Canberra press pack; and the difference it makes to have more senior women in the Press Gallery.
They also delve into the impact of Covid-19, both for Annabel and women more generally, and how the issues of inequality highlighted through the pandemic might flow through to the upcoming federal election.
