Can you please give me an example of what was so abhorrent towards Gillard? It would be interesting to see if their is something so abhorrent that happened to her that hasn't been done to Abbott already.
For a good summary of the harassment Gillard was subjected to I suggest you read this well known speech given by Dr Anne Summers on the subject-
Gillard was subjected to gender based and sexual harassment both by the media and the opposition- this is a widely recognised and documented fact.
I don't agree with everything she and labor did but I do not believe she should have been subjected to the vitriol that she was.
It's easy to say Gillard was targeted due to her gender because of a few slurs which were sexist, but was it the truth?
None of this type of derogatory comment is okay (IMO), but does the presence of sexist slurs against a male prime minister illustrate that it does go both ways?
