Former Liberal MP Julia Banks on Canberra’s boys club

Former Liberal MP Julia Banks on Canberra’s boys club

Julia Banks’ July 3 2021 feature story in the Good Weekend magazine ‘The party’s over’ is a candid recollection of her time as a federal Liberal MP, in which she was shocked to find sexism and backroom skulduggery running rife in Canberra.

Julia is joined by chief political correspondent for The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald David Crowe, with moderation from Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland, in a conversation about her transition from a successful corporate career into federal politics, the tribalism of party politics and whether quotas for women in the Liberal Party are inevitable.
