Next up in our Women in Politics series is high profile Greens Senator for South Australia, Sarah Hanson-Young. The Liberal Party have let it be known that the 31 year old Senator is in for the fight of her political life at the next Federal Election on September 7.
The first thing you notice about Senator Sarah Hanson-Young are her eyes. They are big and bright and blue with a distinctive fleck of brown in her right eye. It gives her a piercing gaze that catches you unexpectedly and fixes you to the spot.
I first notice them when asking about the upcoming election as the Senator turns those eyes on me and says, “Tony Abbott wants my seat.”
