    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!!"
