It disturbs me that women think women are intrinsically not as capable or qualified as men when these debates come up, for no particular reason apart from the fact we have babies and simply don't have what it takes. News flash, there's plenty of women out there who are capable and qualified and have ambitions beyond having a family and being mummies.

It's extremely important to have women represented in parliment, there are many issues that women face and many issues that affect women more than men.
Its very dissapointing that women aren't well represented and thus our voice is often lost.
There are a lot of structural impediments to a woman making her way to a parliamentary position in the first place and I fear this government fosters an environment that makes life harder for most women impeding them further.
In short it sucks, and Tony is a sexist f@cktard.
Strong words I know, but fair considering his offensive, ill thought out statements.

Even if we gave TA the benefit of the doubt and agreed that he selected the best people for the job, why is there only 1 woman? There are 19 ministers in the cabinet.

I'm well aware that women are just as capable and qualified as men, I was saying in this instance I don't think women are being discriminated against, and suggesting that the ministers who have been selected are the best people for the job regardless of sex.

But really there are foolish women and men in the country in almost equal measure, (we know this from the recent election outcome ) surely they could find a few qualified fools willing to represent the Liberal party in cabinet that also have a vagina. Unless ....they are sexist.

"I think it would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in a large number of areas simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons." - Tony Abbott
