Australian history has been made today, with Julia Gillard becoming the country’s first female prime minister. Here is her first speech as PM.
Her appointment was not without controversy however. It came as a result of a leadership challenge against former prime minister Kevin Rudd. With his approval rating falling faster than a skydiver, the political party was left with no other option.
So now we have our first female prime minister, our first non-married prime minister, and our first redhead in the top job! It’s definitely a day for change in Australia, but it remains to be seen whether Miss Gillard has what it takes to turn things around.
