Women in public life, inequality and Australian influence in British politics with Julia Gillard

In this episode of ‘UKICE (I Tell)’ – formerly known as ‘Brexit and Beyond’ – Julia Gillard, former Prime Minister of Australia and Chair of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London talks to Professor Anand Menon about the role of women in public life, tackling inequality and ‘Australia-style’ politics in the UK.

Julia Gillard is the only woman to have served as Prime Minister of Australia, a position she held from 2010 to 2013. Julia was central to the successful management of Australia’s economy, the 12th biggest in the world, during the global financial crisis, and delivered nation-changing policies including reforming Australian education at every level and establishing the nation’s first ever national scheme to care for people with disabilities. In October 2012, Julia received worldwide attention for her speech in parliament on the treatment of women in professional and public life. In April 2018, Julia was appointed Chair of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London.
