Wilkinson said in another tweet that she was not surprised that Mr. Morrison was ousted from the top job because she criticized him for paying little attention to national issues, such as women’s rights.

“Last night’s result shows that if you look the other way when it comes to women, the planet, corruption, bad behavior and a refugee family that wants to do nothing more than live a safe life in a rural town that loves them , change is always going to happen,’ he wrote.

Ms Higgins, who made headlines after alleging she was raped by a former Liberal staffer inside Parliament House in Canberra in 2019, replied: “What a great result!”

“It’s amazing to see such an amazing group of independent women walk into Parliament.”

The 27-year-old was referring to a series of ‘teal’ independents who crushed seated Liberal MPs who previously sat very comfortably in city center seats.

The independents who won were women, and most of them displaced a male Liberal candidate.

Those projected to win seats include Allegra Spender (Wentworth), Monique Ryan (Kooyong), Sophie Scamps (Mackeller), Kylea Tink (North Sydney), Kate Chaney (Curtin) and Zoe Daniel (Goldstein).

High-profile former Conservative Julie Bishop told Nine News on Saturday that the ‘teal bathroom’, as former Liberal Party member Tony Barry dubbed it, occurred because Liberal female voters did not see their concerns reflected in the Liberal party.

Ms Higgins, who made headlines after claiming she was raped by a former Liberal staffer inside Parliament House in Canberra in 2019, responded to Wilkinson's post:

Ms Bishop said Ms Higgins and former Australian of the Year Grace Tame helped pave the way for the historic victories.

“We haven’t mentioned at this point the impact of Grace Tame and Brittany Higgins, they changed the narrative when they exposed an ugly side of the Canberra workplace,” he said.

‘That resonated with the women.’

A number of ‘teal’ independents, mostly women, are on their way to becoming incumbent Liberal MPs, predominantly in inner-city seats, having made climate action and a federal anti-corruption agency the centerpieces. of their campaigns.

Experts say the historic victory was due in large part to a series of ‘frustrated’ female voters who opt for the Greens or ‘teal’ independents because he did not see his concerns and interests reflected in a party led by Mr. Morrison.

Wilkinson previously criticized the now-former prime minister for his lackluster response to Higgins’ allegations that she was raped by a former Liberal staffer at ex-defense minister Linda Reynolds’ office in Canberra in March 2019.

Mr Morrison publicly apologized to Ms Higgins, through the media, and announced that there would be an inquiry into the work culture at Parliament House, but many said it had been long overdue.

Ms. Wilkinson has also accused male federal officials of “hiding behind steam-washed suits” instead of taking action against gender-based violence, and has campaigned for a change of government alongside Higgins.

“If everything Brittany told us is true, Parliament House seems to be the easiest place in this country to rape women and get away with it,” he told a crowd of protesters on the Parliament House lawn in 2020. .

“None of them were surprised when behind the scenes Brittany was branded a lying cow,” he said, referring to Mrs Higgins’ then Defense Minister Linda Reynolds, who delivered the insult within earshot of colleagues in her office. .

“Brittany feels that those forces have done everything they can to take away her power, but Brittany Higgins will not be silenced.”
