Australia has first female prime minister

Standard

Quick hit from CBC:

Australia has its first female prime minister after the ruling Labour Party dumped Kevin Rudd and installed his deputy as leader.

Julia Gillard will lead the government to the next general elections, set for later this year.

UPDATE: Feministing has more.
