Bronwyn Bishop honoured as trailblazer for women in politics
Former Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop AO has received a Queen’s Birthday honour, recognising her as a trailblazer for women in politics.
Mrs Bishop is the longest-serving female federal politician, the first woman elected to the senate for New South Wales, and a working mother to boot.
Hard work, diligence and persistence earned her her success, she told Deborah Knight.
“History told me that individuals could make a difference.
“I’d like this to serve as an inspiration to young Australian women to enter the public life and be proud of their country.”
