TORY SHEPHERD

-

Penning an essay in this issue about the importance of a sisterhood in politics, journalist Tory Shepherd writes about encouragin­g more of a female voice in parliament. “We need more diversity in general, because it will lead to better decisions, should start restoring the public’s faith in politics, and will show young Australian­s that there is a place for them at the highest levels,” she says. Shepherd, who usually writes about politics in South Australia, says what became clear in writing this feature for Vogue was the importance of recognisin­g the good work our female leaders are already doing. “Women in some of the most powerful and stressful jobs in the world keep going when many of us in far less important positions sometimes struggle to face the world.”
