The women were members of Australia’s Parliament, but they said some male colleagues were more interested in commenting on their hair or their wardrobe choices than discussing policy. One recalled being asked if she had entered politics to find a husband. They said male lawmakers hectored them during speeches and even blew kisses at them.
