"I think it's just a question of, you know, engaging in the conversation and redirecting their attention to you."And then sometimes, sort of doing the same thing to them, and looking at someone else." It may be easier to deal with that kind of behaviour when you're the boss, Clark said, but she worries about how the issue affects women who don't have the same level of power.At 101 in a row, the Bay State already owns by far the largest Democratic winning streak to the chamber among Northeastern, Midwestern, and Western states and passed Virginia for #10 on the all-time list last cycle.New Hampshire has both the largest (179 in a row) and longest (since 1856) streaks of fielding U. House nominees from both major parties; Minnesota, Idaho, and Montana also have streaks north of 100."I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man," she said at the time before listing a litany of offensive comments Abbott had made about women and Gillard specifically."I was offended when the leader of the opposition went outside in the front of Parliament and stood next to a sign that said, 'Ditch the Witch.' I was offended when the leader of the opposition stood next to a sign that described me as a man's bitch," Gillard said."Misogyny, sexism every day from this leader of the opposition." Gillard's speech was widely shared around the world and received almost three million views on You Tube.
"If it's happening to me, it is happening to millions of women in your newsroom, in law offices, in workplaces all over this country," she told Mansbridge.
"Not all men are doing it, but all women are experiencing it somewhere, some days." Even if Democratic U. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is elected in November's election and becomes the first female president of the United States, it won't mean that women have cracked the glass ceiling in politics, say three Canadian premiers.

Gillard blasted then-opposition leader Tony Abbott after he criticized her for not dismissing the speaker of the house over sexist text messages he allegedly sent to a staffer.
As Hillary Clinton is poised to become the first woman nominated by a major party to run for president of the United States, Canada's three female premiers say it's an important milestone to celebrate but caution against thinking the political playing field for women is finally even. Premier Christy Clark told the CBC's Peter Mansbridge.
"The first question I got after I got elected leader and became premier was, 'Who are you dating? In an interview airing Tuesday evening on , Clark, along with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, said even securing some of the most powerful political positions in the country hasn't shielded them from workplace sexism.
