My sincere condolences to @ScottMorrisonMP on the death of his father John. Losing your dad is always hard, and even more so when you are serving as PM. My thoughts are with him and his family.
I want our nation to be a world leader in gender equality. Australia’s response to the violent, sexist and misogynistic conduct in our Parliament needs to be urgent, and ambitious. My thoughts here:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s intellect, wise words and determination to achieve gender equality shined throughout her long life of achievement. She inspired women around the world to do more and fight harder. RBG will be missed but her legacy endures.
