His­tory as women rule

Warwick Daily News - - NATION -

IT WAS a small but sig­nif­i­cant group that gath­ered to carry out the busi­ness of govern­ing South Aus­tralia yes­ter­day.

For what is be­lieved to be the first time, it was an all-fe­male meet­ing of the state’s Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil at Gov­ern­ment House.

With Pre­mier Steven Mar­shall and Gover­nor Hieu Van Le on leave, act­ing Pre­mier Vickie Chap­man and Lieu­tenant Gover­nor Brenda Wil­son stepped in. They were joined by the Lib­eral Gov­ern­ment’s only other women in the 14per­son Cab­i­net, Hu­man Ser­vices Min­is­ter Michelle Lensink and Child Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Rachel San­der­son.
