Why we don't need to raise polite girls
When former Australian of the Year Grace Tame recently refused to smile in a photo opportunity with the Prime Minister Scott Morrison, people were outraged. Journalist Peter van Onselen wrote an article describing her behaviour as rude. Amy Remeikis is a political journalist for The Guardian and has just released a book, On Reckoning, that describes what it has been like as a survivor of sexual assault to report on the Government's response to claims of harassment in Parliament House. Amy talks about why we don't need to raise our girls to polite, and why we need to include boys in the conversation. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
