Aussie Women Less Politically Hopeful After Clinton, Peolosi, Gillard’s Bad Press – The Daily Beast

A recent survey conducted by the University of Adelaide and YWCA reveals that Australian women are more hesitant to run for office after Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s run-ins with bad press. According to the survey, 8 out of 10 women over the age of 31 are less likely to pursue a career in politics while 57 percent of women between 18 and 21 years old felt discouraged by the press surrounding Ms. Gillard. The women surveyed noted most negative reception was not based on the Ms. Gillard’s policy decisions or leadership abilities, but on her style and appearance—a marked difference to the media reception afforded to her male peers.
