Lesson in grammar

Under persistent questioning by Leigh Sales on ABC 730 on Thursday night, Julie Bishop made a most remarkable statement:  after delivering a lesson in grammar about the word “she” the Deputy Leader of the Opposition claimed that what else would you call the Prime Minister, who obviously is a female.  She asked how would you refer to her except as “she”.

Will someone in the business of manners please take Julie Bishop aside and explain how disrespectful the use of this word is when referring to any woman not only the PM especially when it is delivered with such venom.  Would “she” (Julie Bishop)  accept this word referring to herself.
