Stumbled upon this article from the Sydney Morning Herald. It’s called ‘Stuck in time’: Julia Banks is back to combat political sexism.

It’s got some really thought-provoking points. Here’s one that we just couldn’t help but share:

It’s an article packed with gems so do give the full article a read. Just click on this link to the Sydney Morning Herald to gain full access.
