    BONUS EPISODE: A new cultural reckoning? Gendered violence and misogyny in Australia and the UK

    Revelations of violent, sexist and misogynistic conduct in Parliament House have rocked Australia, leading tens of thousands to the streets to protest and dominating the news agenda. Meanwhile, in the UK, there has been an outpouring of grief and anger in response to the murder of Sarah Everard, with calls for the government and police to better protect women.
     
    In the wake of these harrowing events, are we experiencing another cultural reckoning, similar to the #MeToo movement? What’s the true extent of gendered violence in Australia and the UK today? And are our policies and laws doing enough to keep women safe? 
     
    In this bonus episode, listen to Julia Gillard and a panel of experts discuss these issues and more at a recent GIWL event.

    Madeleine Albright on politics and diplomacy

    In this special episode from the National Democratic Institute’s Changing the Face of Politics podcast, Julia interviews Secretary Madeline Albright, Former Secretary of State to the United States and Chairman of the National Democratic Institute Board of Directors.
     
    They discuss Madeleine’s experience as a leader in politics and diplomacy, and cover everything from her gender equality advocacy, what it was like to forge the path as the first female Secretary of State, great life regrets, motherhood, and of course her famous quote, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
     
    “Some people that feel inadequate press that inadequacy on other women. So, one can blame men for everything, but I do think that we also bear some responsibility in seeking to do more than is evident at the time.” Madeleine Albright.

    Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic on why incompetent men become leaders

    Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic on why incompetent men become leaders

    In this episode, Julia welcomes her first male guest to the podcast – Professor Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, organisational psychologist and author of Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders? (And How to Fix It). They discuss how Tomas’ Argentinian, military-based background inspired his passion for understanding how individuals and organisations manage and select leaders, and how we have a tendency to be seduced by stereotypically masculine traits – such as perceived confidence – at the expense of competence. So what makes a good leader, and how can we make better, fairer selections? As Tomas explains, the key lies in fixing the system.
