Kuaishou: China's $160 bn livestreaming app for 'ordinary people'

  Kuaishou: China's $160 bn livestreaming app for 'ordinary people' On Lu Kaigang's feed, sheets of tarp are transformed into haute couture as China's mountainous backdrop becomes his catwalk, a 22-year-old villager sashaying to fame via a video-sharing app for the everyman -- Kuaishou. Lu is one of hundreds of millions of users uploading short clips to the app, which propelled its parent company to a $5.4 billion initial public offering last week. But while its competitor Douyin -- the Chinese version of TikTok -- is famed for trendy and typically urban influencers, Kuaishou reaches a different demographic, lassoing in migrant workers and rural Chinese.

Former prime minister Julia Gillard says she's delighted that her iconic misogyny speech in parliament has become a TikTok hit.

Ms Gillard fired off the speech on the floor of the house in response to criticism from Tony Abbott, more than eight years ago.

"I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man," she said.

"Because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn't need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror."

Years later, Ms Gillard is surprised but pleased that hundreds of thousands of people are still listening to those words on the video-sharing platform TikTok.

Jonathan Turley: Trump impeachment trial – No, impeachment is not insulated from free speech arguments

  Jonathan Turley: Trump impeachment trial – No, impeachment is not insulated from free speech arguments The Framers saw impeachment as reserved for cases of constitutional clarity. That clarity is achieved by comparison to the conduct of others – both as criminal and protected matters. As a secondary argument, the scholars insist that "The First Amendment … does not grant the president the freedom to engage in a willful dereliction of duty." The statement is again conclusory. DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS: IMPEACHMENT – WHY AMERICA MUST LET GO OF BITTERNESS TO HEAL Trump is accused of seeking to incite an actual insurrection or rebellion, not just the "willful dereliction of duty.

Dozens of videos feature young women miming her words as they put on makeup and get ready to go out.

"I think that speech has come to connect what what is a very optimistic age," she said on Thursday in a keynote address at the Australian Open.

Ms Gillard said her speech had taken on a new life for young women refusing to put up with gender inequality.

"It's become a battle anthem for them as they go out to reshape the world," she said.

"They look at us with a sense of impatience; why didn't we get more done, we're over this?"

The first female prime minister in Australia, Ms Gillard delivered the speech following months of commentary focused on her appearance and gender.

At the time it was panned by the media as hypocritical, but after a strong public reaction it even prompted the Macquarie Dictionary to update its definition of misogyny.

Ms Gillard says she's surprised people are still talking about the speech eight years on.

"I would have said that can't possibly be right, that's ridiculous, and yet here we are," she said.

She warned the audience that the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on women, especially healthcare workers.

"This recession is disproportionately about women's work," she said.
