Jenny Maskelyn said: Will there ever be a place for women in politics in Australia now they have destroyed the best? After all we are still fighting for rights we thought we had 40 years ago. We are still expected to endure the vile running commentary of male privilege. They don't have these debates in more civilised places. We don't hear about rampant misogyny in conservative societies like Thailand, South Korea and the Philippines. Or in Bangladesh, a Muslim majority country. Or in Indonesia under Megawati. Britain under Thatcher. Or in Israel under Golda Meir. Or New Zealand with two consecutive Prime Ministers, one conservative and one Labour. We didn't hear it in India under Indira Gandhi. We certainly don't hear it in Myanmar where Aung San Suu Kyi attracts the same sort of veneration as Nelson Mandela does in South Africa. We have a real possibility that the next US President will be a woman. And Benazir Bhutto, in a turbulent and violent country dominated in parts by the misogynist Taliban, was as ...

(Photo: The May 18 Memorial Foundation) Taking some time out of a hectic four-day visit schedule, the Nobel Peace Prize winner dined with four well-known faces of the "Hallyu", or Korean Wave, of TV dramas that have captivated audiences across Asia -- including Myanmar. One special invitee was Ahn Jae-Wook, a popular singer and actor who starred in the 1997 TV drama "Star in My Heart" which was a big hit in Suu Kyi's homeland.

Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and South Korean President-elect Park Geun-hye pledged greater cooperation between their countries as they met Tuesday in Seoul. The meeting between two of the most prominent female politicians in Asia comes at the outset of Aung San Suu Kyi's five-day visit to South Korea, her first trip to that country.

"I hope that we can work together to establish a freer and happier South Korea and Burma, as well as in Asia and the world in the future," she said.

Earlier, the Nobel laureate discussed education and economic development cooperation with outgoing President Lee Myung-bak. Later this week, she will give a speech at a development summit and accept a h ...
