Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard on Q+A

Next Monday night a Q+A special, with former Prime Minister Julia Gillard joining host Hamish Macdonald live from Sydney.

The only woman to hold the top job in Australia, Julia Gillard is Chair of Beyond Blue, one of Australia’s leading mental health bodies, and has joined a medical research company involved in the search for a COVID-19 vaccine.

With Victorians locking down again for at least six weeks, how is the pandemic impacting the mental health of Australians? And how close are we to a vaccine?

We’ll also discuss how she reflects on her political career – she now she says there are things she would have done very differently.

So what are they? What did she learn? And how is she tackling the vexed challenge of being an ex-PM?

With her experience on the world stage in politics, economics and global not-for-profits, Julia Gillard has written a new book, Women in Leadership with Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, canvassing the impact of gender on women’s access to positions of leadership. Why do men still dominate the corridors of power around the world? Do women make better leaders?

With a long held passion for education and equality, Julia Gillard now works for the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at Kings College and the Global Partnership for Education.

Her iconic Misogyny speech from 2012 went viral and has recently turned up on TikTok.

The good, the bad and the prickly with Julia Gillard on Q+A, July 13, 9.35pm. Unmissable TV!
