This made me think of Senators Penny Wong & David Bushby:
During a fiery Senate economics committee hearing this morning, Senator Wong clashed with Coalition senators and at one point, Liberal Senator David Bushby gave an audible “meow” in her direction and accused her of being sensitive.
Senator Wong fired back: “You meow when a woman does that … that’s a good idea. It is just extraordinary.
“The blokes are allowed to yell but if a woman stands her ground, you want to make that kind of comment. It’s sort of schoolyard politics, mate.”
Senator Bushby this afternoon released a statement apologising for his behaviour.
