Oh, I just realised that the "Gee" above must be the same "mother" with five children that works as a surgeon and can't think of a single work place where children can be present without causing problems!
I have been dwelling on that a bit, as I work at my desk writing, or outside with our horses (we have a stud farm), or in the office of my politican employer, with the children near me most of the time...
No public broadcaster...now, that would have to be a good thing..? - Dodieh
Links to both the extract and competition entry for 'The Yearning' are broken.... - Jacqui
Thanks Carole~ yip, it was Claudia Wright, I believe too. What a big difference a few brave women can make in changing public awareness from knowing nothing about an area, to knowing something about an area... - ro.watson
Yay Emma! Thank you! As a journalist who has worked for the ABC, and who does not belong to a political party, I so agree with everything you have said! Even though I have quite strong political beliefs I have always bitten my tongue and remembered "two sides to the story", "what are the facts". We cop abuse from all quarters, and, as you say, when the critcism comes from all quarters, from both sides of the political spectrum, then that is some comfort.
You do a great job, as do most of the ABC journos! Where would we be without you! - Dodieh
sue elliott, you seem to be suggesting there is no inherent discrimination against women. That the only barrier to success is in self created and perpetuated. This is patently false. - Sharon
I know this is not the topic~ I love my fix of a regular cartoon~I still miss Victoria Roberts' weekly cartoon in the Weekend Australian. - ro.watson
That woman was Claudia Wright I believe . - Carole/m
Dear Mr. Gee, I'm sure you will remember every election every single second of ABC broadcasts are scrutinised for bias. I mean every second and it has been shown over and over again that there is no bias and each side is given equal time on air. If anything this year has seen a savage turn to the right by the ABC as well as the stacking of the board with the ultra right. So do your research before you shoot off your mouth. - sue Bell
