This is excellent news for all of us who are interested in keeping the number of shrill feministas in our parliament to a minimum. I am posting it as a cross-party resource. I imagine it will be useful in internal selection conventions.

Harder-edged attacks, such as referring to her as a prostitute, were equally damaging among voters, according to research commissioned by a non-partisan coalition of women's advocacy groups.

Excellent news indeed.

Now, what do we do about all the macho neanderthals in our parliament, and elsewhere?
