Video of it. MY JAW DROPPED AND I WANTED TO STAND UP AND CLAP. Honestly, I don’t know how parliaments in other countries compare to the United States (from what I’ve seen, many of them seem to be a lot more aggro/upfront, but I will admit I’m no expert in the subject and might be wrong?), but all I could think is how I… feel like I’ve never seen a political call-out of sexism that was this frank, in this kind of a venue? I mean, you see a lot of talks about women’s rights! Which are important, but I feel you don’t really see BLATANT CALL-OUTS OF SEXISM, AS IN OTHER PEOPLE BEING SEXIST, all that much. Probably because sexists will often use that as ammo to paint the woman as a “shrew,” and I think that’s a powerful silencer. Props to JGill for being so unafraid to be firm and thorough and tell it like it is.

I was watching this the other night, for what it’s worth. JGill’s comments are sort of a potent cleansing of that bullshit.

I disagree with some of her policies, but this is fucking awesome. I highly recommend folks watch the speech.
