Julia Gillard: What it Takes for Women to Lead

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Julia Gillard has the distinction of being Australia's first female prime minister and served as such from 2010 to 2013. In what's been called the most unforgettable moment in Australian TV history, Gillard delivered her famous "misogyny speech," calling out the opposition for sexism. In this 2017 conversation with Steve Paikin, Gillard discussed that ,off the cuff, moment, the importance and challenges of female political leadership, and her work as chair for The Global Partnership for Education. This year, Gillard also became chair of The Wellcome Trust, a London-based charitable foundation focused on health research.
