Does the Australian Liberal Party have a women problem?


We keep hearing how there's not enough of them, they they're far outnumbered by their male counterparts but why? And why do so many talented Liberal women seem to be leaving the party right now?

ABC's Political writer and commentator Annabel Crabb takes us through the Liberal philosophy of merit over quotas and the treatment of arguably one of Australia's most accomplished female politicians Julie Bishop.



Host/Producer: Claire Murphy

Executive Producer: Elle Beattie
