OH MY GOD I LOVE PENNY WONG. She looks like she’s going to rip that dude’s head off.
This was sent to me by thewickedestwench, who writes, “This is Penny Wong, the Australian Minister for Finance and Deregulation, being pretty awesome when “meowed” at.”
I do love this video, I love that she doesn’t just turn red and go speechless (which is what I would probably do in that situation). But I hate the fact that people don’t get that sexism still exists. This woman is an upper level government official in a professional meeting with other upper level goverment officials, and she is meowed at during this meeting, implying of course, that a woman who requests to finish testimony about a topic on which she is an expert is engaging in a “catfight”. Honestly, check yourself, asshole.
