ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on voters' continues unawareness of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard one year after her assumption of power. It states that the gap at the core of her identity as the country's prime minister stunts her skill to talk to the people. It says that voters define Gillard by the act that turned her into prime minister as they are not able to judge her on her deeds or character as prime minister.
