Treasurer, Wayne Swan was also sworn in as Deputy Prime Minister.

Overtime, Julia Gillard has been involved in many issues involving the Australian Not for Profit sector from education to equal pay.

    It has been a long time coming but its here! We now have the first female Governor General, the first elected female Queensland premier and now the first female Prime Minister. Congratulations Julia Gillard – Prime Minister of Australia!  As the twitter universe is saying…."The workers at Government House are rushing to repair the glass ceiling!!"
