I’m walking with a spring in my step this morning, and it has nothing to do with politics.
Whether you’re a Gillard fan or not, today let’s put that aside. Today let’s just rejoice that we’ve reached a milestone. Our country is, for the first time in our history, lead by a woman. She will be sworn in by our first ever female Governor-General. No matter who you vote for, please just take some time today and be grateful for where we are today.
Today young women will look to Gillard and say “that could be me one day.” We now have a role model who has achieved something that no one else has, and it sets a precedence that anything is possible for women in this country.
I, like you, will be watching her journey closely. Congrats Julia.
