Ten years on from the speech that stopped us all in our tracks - Julia Gillard's misogyny speech. Where were you then? And where are we now?

This is a barn-burning piece of Australian feminist history in the making. MATILDA, BETTER READ THAN DEAD

Then it was done. After staying silent, I'd had my say. At no time did I feel worked up or hotly angry. I felt strong, measured, controlled.

On 9 October 2012, Prime Minister Julia Gillard stood up and proceeded to make all present in Parliament House that day pay attention - and left many of them squirming in their seats. The incisive 'misogyny speech' continues to energise and motivate women who need to stare down sexism and misogyny in their own lives.

With contributions from Mary Beard, Jess Hill, Jennifer Palmieri, Katharine Murphy and members of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership, Julia Gillard explores the history and culture of misogyny, the patriarchy's toolbox, intersectionality, and gender and misogyny in the media and politics.

We hear recollections from Wayne Swan, Anne Summers, Cate Blanchett, Brittany Higgins and others of where they were and how they first encountered the speech.

And Julia Gillard explores the roadmap for the future with next-generation feminists Sally Scales, Chanel Contos and Caitlin Figueiredo to motivate us with that rallying cry- Not now, not ever!

Proceeds from the book will go to the Global Institute for Women's Leadership (GIWL).

Julia Gillard was the 27th Prime Minister of Australia, the first, and only, woman to serve in that role. Since leaving office, she has dedicated her time to advocacy, governance roles and writing. In 2021, Julia was appointed Chair of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation based in the UK that supports science to solve urgent worldwide health challenges. Julia is also the founder and inaugural Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership at King's College London and Chair of its sister Institute at the Australian National University. GIWL strives for a world where being a woman is neither a barrier to becoming a leader in any field, nor a contributor to negative perceptions of an individual's leadership. In 2014, Julia joined the Board of Beyond Blue, one of Australia's foremost mental health awareness bodies, and has served as Chair since 2017. As a lifelong advocate for increasing access to education, especially in developing nations, Julia was Chair of the Global Partnership for Education from 2014 to 2021. Julia wrote My Story, a memoir based on her experience as prime minister. Her second book, Women and Leadership- Real lives, real lessons, co-authored with Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, explores the challenges women face in leadership. Her latest book is Not Now, Not Ever- Ten years on from the misogyny speech.

Reviews for Not Now, Not Ever: Ten years on from the misogyny speech

"""With fierce, cool-headed eloquence, Julia Gillard said what so many women had longed to say in public but never had the chance. . . . These essays revisit that galvanising moment, analyse what has changed and what is yet to be achieved."" --Sydney Morning Herald"
