Julie Bishop says: ‘Get over it!’
SMH 29.10.14: Julie Bishop at the National Press Club, launching a “Women in Media” group in Canberra.
“I don’t find the need to self-describe in that way [as a feminist],” she said — “feminist” is “not a term that I find particularly useful these days.”
“It’s not because I have some sort of pathological dislike of the term. I just don’t use it … It’s not part of my lexicon. I’m a female politician, I’m a female foreign minister … get over it.”
