rule of law

The politicians who occupy Australia's federal and state legislatures can remove all women members including the current Prime Minister and two state Premiers and prohibit all women the vote by rescinding legislation which granted women franchise. Men can't be removed or prohibited the vote in the same way, or in all probability with regard to original intent, in any other way.

The rule of law in Australia is very specific, men are privileged to govern by public consent and women are second-class citizens.
