Julia Gillard's 'misogyny' speech could become the defining moment of the election. Those 15 minutes shifted the narrative away from policy failures and onto that more emotive and visceral subject, character.

Has a single off-the-cuff speech, dripping in acidity, changed the contemporary political landscape?

As we all know, it went viral and made headlines around the world. It was Julia Gillard angry, pointed and lashing out at what she saw as treatment of her and her gender.
It was politics in the raw and deeply personal.
