Nova’s Got Next?

Earlier this year, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gilliard used her political weight to get her party to make Nova Peris, an Aborigine and Olympic gold medalist hockey player, their first choice for Northern Territory senator. If elected, Peris will be the first Aboriginal woman to serve in Australia’s Federal Parliament and the fourth Aboriginal of any gender to ever serve in that body.
