Liberal MP Nicolle Flint has delivered an emotional speech about the treatment of women in federal politics.
Ms Flint broke down in tears as she reflected on her time in parliament, including the federal election campaign in 2019.
She was harassed and stalked throughout the campaign in her South Australian seat of Boothby, and her office was scrawled with sexist graffiti.
Ms Flint, who will quit politics at the next election, says the workplace culture inside Parliament House needs to change in relation to the treatment of women.
While much of the focus has centred on allegations of sexual harassment and assault within the Liberal Party, she said Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese needed to get his own house in order.
Ms Flint said Labor leaders should have stood up and supported her when they saw what she was subjected to during the 2019 campaign.
"The safety of women in this place of female staff, of female MPs and senators, should be above politics," she told parliament on Tuesday night.
"The need to change the culture of our parties and of this place should be above politics."
Ms Flint said she would not be lectured to by Labor MPs about the treatment of women.
"I ask the leader of the opposition, where was he and where was his predecessor and where were the senior Labor women when GetUp, Labor and the unions' supporters chased, harassed and screamed at me, everywhere I went in the lead-up to the 2019 election?"
She said all sides of politics needed to deal with the issue through an independent review by Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins.
Mr Albanese said Ms Flint deserved to be safe and people should listen and learn from her story.
"We must learn to have disagreements in a civil way," he told ABC radio on Wednesday.
"Such behaviour from anyone towards a woman or anyone else in politics is completely inappropriate and should not happen."
Mr Albanese said his own female staff also felt intimidated by occupation of their offices by activists during the 2019 campaign.
Opposition frontbencher Penny Wong said the harassment and abuse Ms Flint experienced was utterly unacceptable but it was unfair to criticise Labor women for it.
"I would say to Ms Flint, I agree with you, let's work together to make this a better place for women," Senator Wong told reporters in Canberra.
