Important conversations

It can become too easy to forget how much work there is still to do in the area of equality for women. Thanks for reminding us to persevere.

Can you dig a little deeper sometimes?

I’m really enjoying these podcasts. One thing really bugged me in the Tanya Plibersek one - the question how did you deal with the juggle and the struggle. It always upsets me that women don’t feel that they can be honest and detailed about the real details. When Tanya has to be in Canberra for weeks on end or away, was it just her husband (who presumably also works) looking after the kids? Dropping and picking them up from school? Making dinner etc. Were grandparents helping? Was there a nanny, an Au pair, a cleaner? Why can’t women talk about this? Tanya was vague. Julia didn’t press her on the nitty gritty. Is it because women will feel judged for this level of outsourcing? Until we can be honest and proud of that we will not increase the number of women in either leadership positions or in politics.
When both of us were working in senior positions and with no family in this country to help out we had an Au pair, a cleaner, a gardener and an ironing lady. Now my husband is a stay at home dad. That journey was hard but I’m not ashamed to talk about it.

Thank you Julia!

All of Julia’s conversations have taught me something new and inspired me to see more, do more and be more as a young woman. Each episode of the podcast is relaxed yet candid and feels as though you are eavesdropping on a conversation between two old friends.
