"I enjoy the sort of work I do because it's not the sort of work that a nice woman or a nice lady should do. I do decapitations; I don't mind doing it, especially if it's Rupert Murdoch."

Like her better-known brother Michael, Mary Leunig produces artworks that are unashamedly personal and political.

When all you see is people telling a woman to shut up, you could think that what she has to say is rubbish or you could realise they are using misogynistic terms to do it and that she is probably giving some feminist truth.
Why don't you give some support to this woman who is constantly attacked by men so she can at least have a reference to a decent man.

In the largest survey of its kind, the CSIRO analysed the diets of 86,500 Australians.

They found that Australian diets were worse than they anticipated, and advised that we halve the amount of junk food we eat, and double the amount of vegetables.

It took six days to catch Jill Meagher's killer, about six hours for him to confess, and six minutes for a judge to remand him in custody.

But before notorious rapist and murderer Adrian Bayley was locked up, Jill's husband Tom Meagher became suspect number one.

In a new ABC documentary which delves inside the 2012 murder case, detectives admit to the "awful" treatment of Mr Meagher in the early stages of their investigation.
