    Default Only one female in Tony Abbott's cabinet

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentis...cabinet-abbott




    Does this concern you?

    Is the fact TA has barely made any changes to his cabinet and fails to foster female talent into senior roles indicative of a boys club with their own agenda?

    I haven't seen the line up yet, but maybe the male candidates were better suited than the females? I don't think everything has to be about gender, sometimes the males are just better qualified/suited to a particular task.

    Boys' club. Yes, it concerns me.... Plus we have an Anzac minister and sport minister but no minister for disability, the aging, climate change...

    What concerns me is the reasons why there are no qualified females in the LNP to fill these roles. Because it's a men's club and females can't break in?
    Shame Tony Shame.

    Maybe Julie is really feisty and has sex appeal? Isn't that really important to Tony?

    On the face of it I am
    Concerned. However I would like to see a full list of all liberal MP's... With their bio's before making a final judgement.

    Yes it's a rare and elusive trait... Cos god knows none of the other talented women at the party are feisty and sexy enough to make it to senior cabinet

    Don't know why people are suprised. Tony Abbott is a womaniser/chauvenistic pig which has not even tried to hide. The exact sort of representative that Australia needs

    Agreed though I dont really care for politics

    I would hope that a person in such a position would make the best choices for success. No point choosing someone based on gender just so one can say I have some many of each gender.

    There are a number of woman in deputy positions.
