Prime Minister Scott Morrison wants us to promise something before we all go too far with this whole feminism thing. Basically, that: no men are harmed in the making of gender equality.
Delivering a speech at an International Women’s Day 2019 breakfast in Perth this morning, an event that’s designed to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, our dear leader somehow managed to make it about the blokes.
“We want to see women rise,” he told the Chamber of Minerals and Energy. “But we don’t want to see women rise only on the basis of others doing worse.”
“We want everybody to do better,” he continued, “and we want to see the rise of women in this country to be accelerated to ensure that their overall place is maintained.”
