Changing tunes

Just who’s got access to the playlist, let alone the microphone, was a question many in the audience asked in 2019, with the resignations of several senior female members of parliament.

The questions were asked particularly when both former Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, and the Minister for Women Kelly O’Dwyer resigned.

A few months later, two electorates handed independent candidate Zali Steggall and former New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally the microphone, with both women taking up their new seats in the 46th Federal Parliament.
