Liberal MP Julia Banks to quit parliament, citing 'bullying and intimidation'

Liberal MP Julia Banks has announced she will not recontest her marginal seat of Chisholm in an incendiary statement blasting the “cultural and gender bias, bullying and intimidation” of women in politics.
She described bullying and intimidation as a “scourge” in politics, the media and business, and warned those who would accuse her of “playing the gender card” that she will continue to fight for gender equality because women have been “silent for too long”.
