Gillard & those sexist remarks

CEO Social Justice Blog

At Samaritans we are appalled at the offensive and sexist remarks directed at Prime Minister Julia Gillard last week.

All human beings deserve to be treated with respect and this is an important part of the Samaritans ethos and a key reason for our social justice statements.

The awful comments made to and about our Prime Minister would not be tolerated in the workplace nor should they be tolerated in public life.

Even the Prime Minister’s political opponents must admire the gracious and courageous way she has withstood such unacceptable behaviour.
