Anna Goldsworthy writes in the introduction to her Quarterly Essay, that it’s never been a better time to be a woman in this country ‘on the surface’. Despite the hegemony of females to crucial positions within government, large business and greater education, women are still held to incredible standards in what Goldsworthy marks as an ‘image-centric culture’. Before I read the essay, I thought it was going to be solely based around women in politics, but it wanders off into the general area of sexism and misogyny where she Goldsworthy starts writing about how the female is viewed in common society, and then further away into Gonzo porn, online culture, typically associated with teenage women and their image and how they are viewed online, and also how women may go out and correct their flaws by makeup and plastic surgery. Goldsworthy begins her essay here with Gillard 's speech, now referred to as simply ‘the misogyny speech’, it was a hit out of Abbott and his associated endorsement of ‘sexism and misogyny’.

In her widely watched 2010 TED talk “Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders” (currently with more than 1.5 million views) Sheryl Sandberg, currently Chief Operating Officer of Facebook (and the first woman to serve on Facebook's board) and formerly Vice President at Google, shares her experience of being one of the rare women in top global management positions and offers advice to women who would like to succeed in their corporate careers. In the 15-minute video, Sandberg asks how we can fix the problem of having too few women in top leadership positions in spite of many advances in women’s rights being made. She argues that the solution lies with women themselves, as individuals, and the messages they need to tell themselves and their daughters. This entails three steps: (1) ‘sit at the table’, meaning women should negotiate for themselves more assertively and stop underestimating their abilities; (2) ‘make your partner a real partner’ and establish shared/equal responsibilities between partners at home (i.e. with raising children and housework); and (3) ‘don’t ‘leave’ before you leave’, which means continuing to work at the best of your abilities (i.e. ‘leaning in’ instead of ‘leaning back’ when the possibility of having a child is entertained) until
