Greens and the WEL do their sexist thing down at Tilleys

By johnboy 3 May 2006 18

Late yesterday the Greens put out a media alert letting people know about a special event to be held, er, last night.

Women’s Electoral Lobby (WEL) 2006 Wall of Shame
Date/Time: Tuesday, 2nd of May, 7:00pm

Location: Tilley’s Café, Wattle St, Lyneham.

You and our friends are invited to the 2006 Wall of Shame at which WEL members and friends vote on and present an ‘award’ for the most appallingly poor comment about women in the past year. Order your own food and drinks. Kitchen will be open until 10pm. Donation requested for WEL campaign funds. RSVP to

I’d be fascinated to learn the most egregious villain against “right thinking” women (was it me?). This is is ACT after all, not NSW. Can anyone enlighten us?

What’s Your opinion?

Yep, it probably was, and still is, a very relevant organisation. However, like a lot of things it can easily get hijacked by those with an agenda to push which quickly removes those who don’t subscribe to that particular ideology.

Not that I’m saying this is the case with WEL.

And there wwas a time when WEL was an exciting, relevant organisation…

Since it was a WEL event and not a Greens event, I’m sure Deb was in the running. How well did she score Roland ?

Thumper 3:51 pm 03 May 06

What a tosser.

And someone voted him in….

DT 1:19 pm 03 May 06

The quote was him saying women were “dumb to get pregnant willy-nilly”.

I thought they would have given it to the Magistrates who didn’t let the chick breastfeed in open Court. Or one of the ‘mysoginist’ men running Club Pink who wouldn’t let them breastfeed in the kitchen there either.

johnboy 1:12 pm 03 May 06

Oh what? A national award?? Relevance deprivation anyone?

Erg0 1:02 pm 03 May 06

Apparently the quote was from Federal Liberal MP Alan Cadman. No idea what the specific quote was, though.

Thumper 11:03 am 03 May 06

Who won Roland? Do you know as I reckon it’s a cack.

Especially when you get to read whatever the idiot has said!


Roland GRNS 10:40 am 03 May 06

It was a WEL event, not a Greens event. See Canberra times today for details.

Kerces 10:29 am 03 May 06

The Greens do have an awful habit of putting up their media alerts at the time of the event they are alerting about. Wonder how they expect to get non-mainstream media to cover said events?

Chris S 9:33 am 03 May 06

Didn’t they call these awards “The Greg’s” after Greg Cornwell, former MLA and sometime Speaker of the LA? Some of the contributions of Greg and many others were absolutely priceless, and hopefully will not be lost.

WEL – who let the(se) dogs out?

Yep, Deb Foskey would be tops for ACT Silly Cow of the Year 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006.

What are they doing out of the kitchen?

Thumper 9:09 am 03 May 06

No, not for the Tilley’s award. Although I’m sure she would have been there with bells and whistles….

barking toad 9:08 am 03 May 06

I’ll second that motion

(assuming you’re not saying she’s a bloke and nominating for the tilley award)

Thumper 8:39 am 03 May 06

And my nomination would be Deb Foskey.

Thumper 8:38 am 03 May 06

I always wonder if men decided to have an alternative ‘award’ about the dumbest, stupidiest, most ridiculous female in public view, what the outcome would be.

However, I can’t wait to find out who the uber villian is.

Actually, I don’t wonder, I already know the answer.
