KEVIN Rudd has broken with 107 years of tradition by announcing the appointment of Australia’s first female Governor-General.
The Prime Minister said yesterday Queensland Governor Quentin Bryce would become the Queen’s senior representative in Australia in September.
Ms Bryce described her appointment as “a great day for Australian women”. “I grew up in a little bush town in Queensland with 200 people,” she said.
“And what this day says to Australian women and Australian girls is that you can do anything, you can be anything, and it makes my heart sing to see women in so many diverse roles across our country.”
Ms Bryce, 65, is a married mother of five with five grandchildren.
What more can you say?
Congratulations Quentin and we look forward to reading/hearing more about your continued fine work.
seems you can live dreams…
