I have to commend Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews on addressing gender imbalance but I must also express my concerns re gender equality.
I'm not so sure that rightly addressing gender imbalance on Victorian Government Boards and Courts automatically means gender equality.
I hope people realise that all those who hold public office must be held to account to serve on behalf of the whole community with appropriate attitudes to both genders and reasonable, even-handed, gender-equal application of the law.
"Rule of Law IS one size Fits All"
"Rule of law, equal application of the law, due process, respect of one person for another are necessary for a peaceful productive society"
"Solidarity with female criminality?"
"We need a system that protects the vulnerable, punishes the guilty and saves lives.
That's why I was joined this morning by Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, at Government House to formally present the letters patent to formally establish Australia's first Royal Commission into Family Violence to the Governor of Victoria.
The biggest law and order issue in our state is unfolding in our homes. The Royal Commission will give us the answers we need and nothing will be off limits."

We cannot continue to ignore female domestic violence/ female violence.
To do so is to ignore reality and make our community less safe.
It is weak-minded and wrong to censor reality simply to appease a politically correct mind-set.
