Scott Morrison faces backlash after ‘Prime Minister for Women’ comment

by Mary Sewell

Scott Morrison faces backlash from all sides. He has been accused of making “a bad situation worse” after describing Minister for Women Marise Payne as the “Prime Minister for Women”.

The Prime Minister has been criticized with PM for Women trending overnight after his major cabinet reshuffle on Monday, which has seen a raft of changes to some of Australia’s top names and jobs after weeks of scandal.

Morrison has faced “intense pressure” after “a very bruising few weeks”, the BBC’s Australia correspondent Shaimaa Khalil said, describing the weeks of bombshell claims that “have really shaken his government to the core”.

But instead of fixing the problem, he’s “made a bad situation worse”, according to Sky News host and former chief of staff to former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Peta Credlin. On Monday night, an exasperated Credlin appeared on her program, Credlin, baffled over how Morrison kept making “fundamental mistakes” on women.

Meanwhile, author Jane Caro told The Drum she was “gobsmacked” by his latest comment.
