Last night as former NSW Premier, Nathan Rees’ fate was sealed and Kristina Keneally stepped up to take on the scrupulous task, the Australian female population took two great steps forward in the ongoing battle for equality in the political stakes.
NSW now has its first female state Premier, a promotion which also marks the first female double act in Australian political history with Carmel Tebbutt announced as her deputy.
A cause for celebration? You would think so.
However unfortunately the media decided such a landmark in Australian politics wasn’t ‘sensational’ enough to be the ‘hook’ of the story and decided to go with the puppet show analogy instead.
The first day in the office and Kristina Keneally wakes up to this disgusting image gracing the front page of the Daily Telegraph this morning.
The image speaks for itself. What an insult.
