Labor men have sabotaged Labor's first woman

Kevin Rudd's camp has employed crude methods to promote the worthy cause of a post-union party – inadvertently adding an ironic twist to Labor's misogyny concerns.

Two Labor women gave notable valedictory speeches yesterday – former Attorney-General Nicola Roxon and Northern Territory senator Trish Crossin – giving very different verdicts on the leadership of their own party.

Crossin is still bittterly angry about Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s decision to bump her from the top spot on the Northern Territory senate ticket, replacing her with well known former Olympian Nova Peris.
