125 Years: Are We There Yet?

30 August 2018 | WORD Christchurch Festival

Presented by the National Library of New Zealand and the Royal Society Te Apārangi, and proudly supported by the Ministry for Women's Suffrage 125 Community Fund

To commemorate 125 years of women’s suffrage, we assemble a panel of extraordinary New Zealand women to discuss how far we have come since women were granted the vote, and how far we still have to go in the fight for gender equality. Featuring pioneering human rights activist Georgina Beyer, historian Dame Anne Salmond, musician and writer Lizzie Marvelly, head of Aotahi, the School of Māori and Indigenous Studies at the University of Canterbury Sacha McMeeking, and Paula Penfold, consulting journalist on Stuff’s #metooNZ investigation, chaired by Kim Hill.

With a special introduction by Gemma Gracewood and Megan Salole of the Wellington Interational Ukulele Orchestra.
