Nixon accuses Kennett of misogyny in debate on ‘Women Leading’
Former top cop Christine Nixon has accused former Premier Jeff Kennett of misogyny in a robust discussion on women leaders with Neil Mitchell.
Ms Nixon was in the studio to spruik her new book, Women Leading, when the conversation turned to the reaction to her own leadership role as Chief Commissioner.
She said had a mostly positive response, but didn’t hold back when it came to Mr Kennett.
But she wasn’t able to give reasons why she came to the conclusion.

In a wide-ranging and sometimes heated interview, Ms Nixon also said:
- It’s time to introduce gender quotas
- Julia Gillard was undermined because she was female
- She would do a good job running 3AW by putting women on-air (we’re not sure which announcer she would sack first, though…)
