Foreign Minister Julie Bishop features in the latest issue of Vogue Australia. The deputy Liberal leader talks about her love of running, her family and gender.
“There are lots of benefits from it, obviously keeping mind and body active is important, but it’s also ‘me time’.
“I spend a lot of time thinking about that day, that week, the issues I have to deal with — there’s certain clarity of thought that comes with exercising outside. And when I’m running overseas it gives me an opportunity to see a city.”
“We all need people around to provide support and a hug and tell you things are okay, and I’m no different from everybody else in that regard, and family is obviously very important.”
“As I often say, I’ve never been a man in this position, how do I compare?,” she says. “I see myself as a parliamentarian and a minister, I have a job to do and I put all that I have into doing it, so being a woman doesn’t play a role in that.
“But I’m proud of the fact that I’m the first female foreign minister.”
The full interview will be in Vogue Australia out on Monday.
