Julia Gillard Is Australia’s First Female Prime Minister, And Its 900th To Support Marriage Bans

Congratulations to Julia Gillard, who just replaced Labor Party colleague Kevin Rudd as Australia’s prime minster, becoming the first lady to hold the post. She has a severe lung infection to thank! And by the way, she’s supports the government’s decision to endorse marriage discrimination!

“[T]he government’s position is very clear that marriage is between a man and a woman,” she told a reporter last year, adding that it’s a position she “certainly” agrees with. One step forward, one step back.
