FOREIGN Minister Julie Bishop and feminist Germaine Greer have gone head-to-head on Q&A over the "free the nipple" movement and a reference to the Bali Nine.

The topic came up when Ms Bishop was asked by Q&A guest host Annabel Crabb about the "free the nipple" campaign and if she would ever consider doing it.

"It's not something that I've ever actually had to the desire to do online, I'm ... quite adept at my emoji language and that's about as radical as I get," Ms Bishop said.

But feminist Germaine Greer drew gasps when she asked Ms Bishop: "What if it got you the commutation of the life sentences for two Australians?", referring to Bali Nine ringleaders Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, who are on death row.

Ms Bishop replied: "Please don't go there, Germaine, please don't go there".

Earlier, Ms Bishop had spoken about why she rejects the word "feminist", saying: "The more people demand I describe myself as a feminist, the more I say let me describe (myself) how I wish."

Ms Bishop said she doesn't want to be "stereotyped".

"I don't want to be stereotyped and I don't want to be pigeonholed," Ms Bishop said on ABC TV.

"And if I want to self-describe in a particular way, I will, and if others want to self-describe, that's great."

She said her actions and achievements as Foreign Minister should speak louder than labels.

"Instead of focusing on so much analysing the labels, let's look at what people do," Ms Bishop said.

Tonight's Q&A was a special, All About Women, hosted by political journalist, Annabel Crabb, with topics covered including the gender pay gap, sexism, and the representation of women in the media.

Speaking on Q&A, Ms Bishop also said: "I'm very proud of what I've been able to achieve as Foreign Minister in focusing on gender inequality in our region and across the world and I've refocused our aid budget, so that our aid budget focuses on gender inequality".

She famously declared "I'm no feminist" in an interview last year, saying she doesn't find the word "useful".

Ms Bishop was also asked about not having children.

"I'm not suggesting for a moment that every person who is a Foreign Minister has to have no children because that's ridiculous," Ms Bishop said.

She said being Foreign Minister was an "extremely demanding role" that took her overseas at a moment's notice, such as during the MH17 tragedy, and "that would have been a real problem for people who had other responsibilities at home".

The ABC TV all-female panel also included Bad Feminist author Roxane Gay, Best & Less chief executive Holly Kramer, and engineer and youth advocate Yassmin Abdel-Magied.
