Although everyone basically already knew it, it has been confirmed that Australia is a sexist nation.
It’s been confirmed that more men called Anthony have served as Prime Minister, than any Australian women.
Previously, popular Australian Prime Minister names have been Joseph and John but at this point in time, it’s also been confirmed that 100% of currently serving Australian PMs are called Anthony, compared to the 0% of women who are presently in the top job.
Historically, only 3% of Australian Prime Ministers have been women which is enough to trick Australians into thinking we are not a sexist nation.
“Julia did lots of good things, what about that misogyny speech,” stated one voter who had apparently forgotten about the NDIS, Gonski funding, and the most pieces of legislation passed per day of any government.
“You know she’s doing a ten-year tour of the speech right? Gonna see if she’ll sign my tea towel!”
However, the history of Australian political diversity can no longer be glamorised as at this very moment men called Anthony now outnumber all women as Australian Prime Ministers.
Pretty confronting to think about.
More to come.
