Cassandra, with due respect, your view and analysis is nonsense, inconsistent, contradictory and sex discrimination. It is a shame even more given that you are the same side of the sex claiming victims.
It would have had a little appeal if this piece was coming from the opposite side.
You said Rudd Prime Ministership is a case that "it's already been tried, tested and rejected." But what about Gillard's? Relatively speaking, whose is worse or better?
Your illogical reasoning and analysis reflects how poor your analytical skills and how poor your judgement is.
Yes, we all watched on TV that Rudd didn't treat nicely the NSW previous premier who's female and your boss since you worked as an advisor to her.
But one should get over that given that changed politics since.
