CNN 澳洲女總理專訪,有句子看不懂。

這是 CNN 節目 Talk Asia,主播 Anna Coren 對澳洲女總理 Julia Gillard 專訪的原稿。

ANNA COREN: In the cutthroat and ruthless world of Australian politics, stands a woman at its core who's taking on the boys' club . Meet Australia's first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. A Welsh immigrant who went on to claim the most prestigious office in the country.

COREN: You certainly hold your own, so, I presume it's game on? Correct?

問題一:第一句好像是 at its core stands a woman who's taking on the boys's club 的倒裝,但 who's taking on the boys's club 是什麼意思?

問題二:claim 應怎麼翻?字典的要求,主張,聲稱,好像不太通順。

問題三:You certainly hold yourown, so, I presume it's game on? Correct? 這句的背景是澳洲國會,我也看不懂。

    boys's club 指以男性為多的國會、政府

    第一句是開場白:

    在競爭激烈且無情的澳洲政治圈,有一個女人立足在圈子的核心 -她肩負支撐這個男性為多的機構的重責大任。讓我們歡迎澳大利亞第一位女總理 -茱莉亞吉爾得。一個威爾斯移民,卻主持著澳洲最高機構。

    claim 在此解釋為主持,也有"要求"的意思,總理"下令"、"指示"、"要求"底下的政府單位之意。

    問題三要看前文說了什麼,單看這句意思是:

    當然你絕對是支撐得很辛苦,我想挑戰開始了,對嗎?

    1. "boys' club" means the male politician in the Australis congress.

    2. "claim" means "to take", or "to preside"

    3. that sentence means Julia Gillard will fight the congress for what her principle

    is (or maybe her political point of view, or policy).
