So some of you may have seen my appearance on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise, which I’d been told was going to be a debate with Miranda Devine about feminism and domestic violence policy. SURPRISE! Only when the cameras were rolling on a *live broadcast* did I discover professional misogynist and goon Mark Latham waiting for me. Fifteen minutes passed in which very little was discussed beyond Latham making factually untrue statements about the gender pay gap, blithering out a ramble of invented claims about my background, accusing me of being an extremist (an anarchist! tremble under the sheets, Martha!), and stating his belief that I am “safely ignored”.
Believe it, folks: I am SO SAFELY IGNORED that this article appeared in the US magazine Elle this morning, which has a Twitter following of a safely ignored 5m people.View on Facebook

I really had a spectacular time at the Queensland Council of Unions Labour Day Dinner tonight. Thousands of union people celebrating the victories of organised labour. Please remember this photo of me, QCU secretary Ros McLennan and ACTU President Ged Kearney next time you are told about dangerous union thugs – because whoever saying it is talking about us.View on Facebook
