There are a few famous women or women from the media who I admire. Here is a bit of list.
Pollies: Julia Gillard. No nonsense type and nothing wrong with her hair. Pity about the horrid pant suit she had on a couple of days ago.
Judith Troeth. Although a Tory, she beavers away behind the scenes, sits on many committees and known for her sympathetic ear when helping people.
