1. Women of the House: Sarah Hanson-Young

Sarah Hanson-Young's biggest and most public battle with sexism came via a defamation lawsuit against former Liberal-Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm. A targeted media blitz in 2018 put her at the centre of a slut-shaming campaign. But the war started long before and has been raging since she entered politics aged just 25. Behind the closed doors of parliament, Senator Hanson-Young reveals a constant barrage of misogyny and sexualised bullying which has largely remained undisturbed - until now.
