Last week I attended a networking event aimed at people in the agricultural industry. The guest speaker was a member of the NSW state parliament, and a woman. Her speech gave me much cause for thought and I madly scribbled notes throughout so I can share those thoughts with you at a later date.
The one that seems to have left the biggest impression on me is this;
The MP was elected to office while heavily pregnant. She was sworn in just 10 days after giving birth. This should make her a hero of mine – demonstrating that women *can* have it all.
So why was my first (incredibly guilt-ridden) thought that her pregnancy would have made me think twice about giving her my vote if I was in her constituency?
