a history of the misogynistic language of the PM

What’s behind the prime minister’s lack of popularity among women? It could be his story of sexist and condescending comments.

Women don’t like Scott Morrison. All recent polls indicate a significant gap in the Coalition primary vote between men and women, ranging from 6 to 10 points. Roy Morgan’s latest poll indicated that, in bipartisan preferential terms, women’s vote for the Coalition was 41% versus 59% for Labor. This is a huge gap.

Because that’s how it is? An ACTU report suggests women are more affected by rising cost of living and job security issues – both major issues in the election – and Morrison’s mismanagement of publicity surrounding Brittany’s alleged rape. Higgins and Richelle Miller’s mistreatment in March last year also fueled the idea.

However, it would appear that Morrison’s position with women has been waning for some time and the women following these things believe that’s what Morrison has. She said ever since he arrived in Parliament he has contributed to this low rank.
