ABC’s Four Corners goes behind the scenes with some of the Independent women who defied the odds and defeated high profile politicians in the 2022 federal election.

For this episode of Four Corners, journalist Louise Milligan gained unusual access to two newly minted MPs, Monique Ryan (Member for Kooyong) and Dai Le (Member for Fowler), as well as new Tasmanian Senator Tammy Tyrell (Jacqui Lambie Network), documenting personal moments in their transition to Canberra as they begin to navigate their roles as elected MPs and Senators.

The episode first aired on Monday 15 August on ABC.

“I feel like an imposter. . . it hasn’t sunk in yet. I think it won’t sink in until I get to sit in Parliament House on the 26th of July.”

– Dai Le, Independent Member for Fowler
