Media #FTW- Australian Prime Minister PWNs misogynist

Submitted by on October 22, 2012 – 1:43 pm

After the leader of the opposition in the Australian Parliament provided a lecture on ‘reverse sexism,’ the Prime Minister argued that reverse sexism is not a problem: misogyny and sexism, on the part of the Opposition, is the problem. Prime Minister Gillard’s speech reveals exactly how “reverse sexism” is often used as a tool to silence women who target male privilege, and then teaches the Opposition Leader and his Bench about misogyny using their own conservative policies and statements as examples.

Check out Finally, a Feminism 101′s blog post on the myth of reverse sexism for more information and resources for teaching about so-called reverse discriminations, as well as the Warren/Sterba debate-book on Men’s complicated relationship to feminism.
