Glenda Jackson's 'tribute' speech for Margaret Thatcher - a marvellous book-end for Gillard's 'misogyny' speech

Looking for a book-end to Julia Gillard's 'Misogyny' speech?  I consider the speech given yesterday by Glenda Jackson in the House of Commons in London as part of the 'tribute' session for Margaret Thatcher to be an appropriate book-end.  Gillard's speech was delivered in response to the words and deeds of a man. Jackson's was delivered in response to the words and deeds of a woman.

Thank you, Glenda Jackson,
for another stunning performance.
