Partying Politicians-Seeing Double or Double Standards?

Fourth Estate

When is it okay for politicians to go out partying?

In this episode, we critique the media coverage of partying prime ministers. In light of the Finnish Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, partying in her downtime and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese recently sculling beer at a music concert, we ask if a double standard exists between female and male politicians and is the media perpetuating gender tropes?

Tina Quinn discusses gender tropes, drinking culture and the outcomes of the politicians’ behaviour, with associate editor & investigative journalist of Crikey News, Amber Schultz and the Hon. Mary Delahunty.
