Uppity Women #22

Julia Gillard has broken the mold for political leadership in so many ways, it's hard to know where to start in listing them.

✔1. Australia's first female Prime Minister.

✔2. Avowed atheist.

✔3. Lives, unmarried, with life partner Tim Mathieson.

✔4. No children.

✔5. Has made not just healthcare but mental healthcare a priority in her administration, along with education and a solid program with incentives for actions geared toward preventing climate change.

How many ways can you say marvelous?

I'm sure my longtime reader Sally will be happy to see her recognized as such!
