It's been nine years since Julia Gillard was ousted from office, where she held the title of Australia's first and only female prime minister.
It's been 10 years and two days since she gave a speech that turned her from a politician into a feminist icon, whose quotes have since been tattooed on arms and recreated on TikTok.
Earning the name the 'misogyny speech,' Julia's words in parliament on October 9, 2012, came from a place of deep frustration. Of dealing with gendered and sexist politics for more than 15 years.

But she's confident the second woman to hold that role will have a vastly different experience.
"I think there's been more and more of a waking up that so much of how politics is played and reported is truly gendered, and that means that today I think it would be impossible for someone in the parliament to use the kind of terminology that was used about me without huge political consequences," she told Mamamia's daily news podcast The Quicky.
"It would be impossible for media to just report in the same way, and to not see the gender bits... I think they very much see the gendered bits now and try and unpack them."
