Women in Politics

CIS hosted a panel of speakers to thrash out the issues surrounding women in politics. Are setting affirmative-action quotas the answer to boosting female representation? Or is a merit-based system of choosing candidates a better option? Are claims of a bullying culture inside the Liberal Party true? Is Labor playing the gender card and identity politics? Who’s had better policies on improving the lives of women? Labor or the Coalition?

Moderated by Ticky Fullerton, formerly with the ABC and Sky News. She was joined by,  Karina Okotel is a senior civil lawyer at Victoria Legal Aid and a federal vice president of the Liberal Party,  Eugenie Joseph is a former senior policy analyst at The Centre for Independent Studies, Kristina Keneally, a former NSW premier, is a Labor senator for NSW.
