I hear the phrase "Minister for Women" being used sarcastically about Abbott.
What caused this title to be used for him?
The wikipedia article Minister for Women (Australia) mentions that the title of the current incumbent, Michaelia Cash, is "Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women", which was described as ambiguous English by this article, but similar positions existed under Howard, Keating, Hawke, and Fraser. So why did it become a sarcastically used term about him?
Was it because of attention given to the title when there was a typo in it Tony Abbott's 'Prime Minister for Woman' typo sparks ridicule, or Abbott's reputation about gender issues, or something else?
