Amanda Lohrey and Judith Brett’s take on Julia Gillard’s dummy spit were typical feminist rants. It was interesting to note that Alan Jones was dragged into the fray by virtue of his distasteful “died of shame” remark. Feminists like to suggest that his audience is composed entirely of men, but modern Australian women are quite capable of having their own views, and the fact that his ratings have actually increased says a lot about both sexes having an open mind on what constitutes misogyny and sexism.
