Jody Day writes about Julia Gillard’s response to Tony Abbott’s comments on her childlessness

Greetings,

 

I am forwarding a link for an article written by Jody which appeared in the Comment section of the Guardian on Thursday. It addresses the issue of judgements and assumptions which are often made in relation to women who are childless. I’ve certainly experienced some of those judgements, though they are rarely articulated so directly, or they are softened or blurred…great to see them being examined and challenged by Jody!
