Format: Paperback
Well written and thoroughly researched work about the treatment of female politicians by the Australian media. Originally published in 2004 it is essential background reading for anyone wanting to understand the hostile media and political environment in which Australia's first elected female Prime Minister survived and thrived. Baird clearly has the trust of her subjects in her interviews which allows her to build a detailed and complex insider's view of the treatment of female policians by the Australian media.
