Hi Chris,

There are rotten apples in every political party, and from time to time the criminals get exposed, and rightly so. My question here is not a concern for the criminals within, but the "culture" regarding women that appears to exist, predominantly within the Liberal Party at the federal level. Women have struggled from the beginning for political recognition and and their rightful participation in the process. It wasn't men demanding they be given the vote by women, in western democracies at the beginning of the twentieth century, but just the opposite, women struggling for what was rightfully theirs, and its been a struggle for equality ever since.

Recent history is littered with claims of misogyny, bullying, gender discrimination and sexual assaults all against women, and all associated with the Liberal Party. My thread title "Women a Liberal Party Problem" seems to be true. The more progressive parties have moved beyond the days when politics was purely a male dominated domain and have embraced women as equals. Unfortunately the conservative side of politics has a long way to go before their attitudes towards women truly change. I can't see evidence that the men's club, aka the Liberal Party is willing to embrace real change any time soon.

The fact Morrison had to ask the little woman at home, about a girly problem at work, and his wring of hands and obvious insincerity before the cameras yesterday, shows where the Liberal Party is at when it comes to gender equality within. They don't have a clue!

Paul1405,

I think Soot has got a real vote loser on his hands.

But don't worry Soot, Jen will fix it.

And if Jen can't do it, then just ask Barnaby.

Paul, I do find it hard top believe that the PM's office did not know about it.

People talks about incidents in all types of work, and something as serious as rape would be hard to keep under wraps

Maybe the PM is even more remote from the rest of us than we even thought. Even so, it is nothing to do with him, unless he is also running ACT police, and the person claiming she was raped has made a complaint, which I understand she now has. So, here we go with another 'historic' sex case with the usual suspects bleating "we believe you" because she's a woman and 'all men are bad'. Remember Craig McLaughlin, Geoffrey Rush - both cleared. And the most alarming case, George Pell. Australians coming to the attention of the law can no longer be sure of justice.
