On the telly

The lovely people at ABC News Tonight have been inviting me on the show over the past few months to talk about the election and politics more broadly.

Here’s a video clip of my appearance on Wednesday night.

 

 

Why I wrote a book about Liberal women

Did I mention I have a book coming out this week? For those of you who aren’t on social media, this may actually be real news. So I thought I’d do a quick blog post to tell you all about it.

The book, On Merit, is about the Liberal Party’s “women problem”, but it also explores why Liberal women continue to perpetuate the myth that they should only progress within the party “on merit”.

I’ve set up a separate page on this blog to explain why I wrote the book, provide links to articles I’ve written on the same topic over the years, and also provide links to any articles or interviews about the book.

I hope you enjoy reading and talking about the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

How do I subscribe to Despatches?

How do I subscribe to Despatches?

Despatches is a political newsletter that I send to my Patreon supporters every parliamentary sitting day.

Some of those supporters have pledged the minimum US$1 a month and some have pledged more, but every Patron receives the newsletter. There are additional ‘rewards’ for people who pledge higher amounts.

Despatches cuts through the partisan hype that surrounds everyday Australian politics, telling you what’s important about the day’s events, and why.

If you’d like to read the last few editions of Despatches, they will be outside the paywall until the end of today (Monday 2 July).

And if you like what you see, come join us! It really does only cost US$1 a month. You can subscribe by clicking the big orange box on my Patreon page that says “become a Patron”.
