In Question Time today, Premier Hodgman let down Tasmanian women and girls by refusing to condemn Liberal powerbroker, Senator Abetz, for his glowing celebration of President-elect Donald Trump's win in the U.S. election.
Mr Trump's comments about women are sexist and his behaviour condones sexual violence.
When political leaders sing his praises it sends a strong message to the community that sexism will be ignored and tolerated.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Women spokesperson
The announcement today of two new women appointed to the Board of the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB) is a welcome step forward, but Tasmania's state owned businesses still perform poorly on gender equality.
Of the state's fourteen GBEs and State owned companies, only two Board Chairs are women and only one CEO is a woman.
