WELL done to the reporter who asked the question of our new Premier in his press conference last week: just how will he juggle it all, with six kids at home?
After all, he is the "first premier for families," as Premier Perrottet put it.
It's a question every female politician and appointee to senior positions gets asked: it is good to see journalists at last evening things up for all the women who've had to answer this before.
In interviews for my first role in a top tier law firm, I was asked questions testing my commitment to working the silly hours required, if your house catches on fire, will your husband (then a university academic) be able to leave his tutorial and return home to care for the children?
And of course if women politicians don't have children as happened to Julia Gillard they cannot win.
They are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Julia Gillard was described by the conservative senator, Bill Heffernan, in 2007 as being "deliberately barren" then later by Tony Abbott as, among other things, lacking experience in raising children.
A judge I met who had five kids at the time of her appointment was asked this question (how was she going to juggle): her tongue-in-cheek response, I will tie them to the Hills Hoist and spin it around.
