Ms Bishop also detailed her failed bid for the Liberal leadership when Malcolm Turnbull was toppled last year, saying she felt an "overwhelming responsibility" to put herself forward.

"I also felt that I owed it to the women of Australia because I'd been the deputy and, you know, criticised, "oh she's always the bridesmaid," she said.

"And many of them were wonderful supporters to me, I didn't want them to think 'oh, she hasn't got the courage to stand even though she might lose'."

Ms Bishop said she was late to enter the three-cornered contest between herself, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton and now Prime Minister Scott Morrison, in which she received only 11 votes.

"Perhaps if I'd had more time, because I was the last into the race, I waited until Malcolm had actually announced that he wasn't going to contest. Whereas others didn't."

Ms Bishop said she found it "disturbing" she was the only female minister in Tony Abbott's 2013 Cabinet and described an experience she labelled "gender deafness".

"I love men, and I think they have a wonderful contribution to make to humanity, but if you're the only female voice in the room they just don't seem to hear you."

Ms Bishop retired from politics at the May election and has since been announced as the next chancellor of the Australian National University.

She also joined the board of Palladium, a move which was scrutinised but cleared by the Prime Minister's Department following allegations it breached ministerial standards.

Ms Bishop said her swift exit from the House of Representatives after her final speech was not intended as a snub to Mr Morrison, saying she did not realise he would pay tribute to her in the chamber.

"You might note that I get a catch in my voice and I thought oh my god I'm going to cry on camera," she said.

"So I took a few pecks on the cheek and then I went out because I thought the last thing I'm going to do is cry in the House of Reps, I mean seriously."
