Triple J Plays Julia Gillard’s Iconic Misogyny Speech As Part Of Requestival

As part of Triple J’s Requestival – where all of the station’s programming is determined by listeners – the station played Julia Gillard’s famous misogyny speech.

The speech, which Gillard originally gave in 2012 when she was Prime Minister, was targeted at then leader of the opposition Tony Abbott.

It has since been voted the most unforgettable moment in Australian TV history.

Gillard’s speech hit international audiences last year, when it was remixed with Doja Cat’s song ‘Boss B*tch’. Gillard then later gave an interview via TikTok to the creator (@minorfauna) who popularised the remixed speech.

According to the official Triple J Plays Twitter account, the track was sandwiched between ‘Safety Dance’ by Men Without Hats and ‘Quit Your Job’ by Thundamentals.

Last year’s Requestival saw songs such as ‘Crazy Frog’ and ‘I’ll Make A Man Out Of You’ from the Disney film Mulan get aired, while ‘Bet On It’ by Troy Bolton (Zac Efron’s character in High School Musical, for the uninformed) and Fornite themed ‘American Boy’ remix ‘Chug Jug With You’ have both been played this year.

You can hear more madness (and maybe iconic Aussie political speeches?) on Triple J until the end of the week.
