Australian PM Gillard against gay marriage

0 comments

The Sydney Morning Herald profiles Australia's new woman prime minister, viagra dosage Julia Gillard, order who succeeded to the post after Kevin Rudd stepped down at the end of June. 

It outlines her rise to the top job and her aspiration to be seen in the same light as the popular ex-PM, cheap Bob Hawke. 

Although many women in Australia welcomed the fact that she had smashed the glass ceiling in Australian politics and seemed to represent a new way forward, she has, rather depressingly, declared that she is against gay marriage. 

As Samantha Stevenson points out, also in the Sydney Morning Herald, supporting gay marriage is not just a step forward for the homosexual community, it would also help to smash "another cultural norm – the gender inequality of marriage."
