Product description

Analyzing the gender politics in New Zealand, this account explores feminism, women's voting and representation, and areas of conflict and cooperation. Key questions are answered, such as What has happened to the New Zealand women's movement since the 1970s? How has the national voting system changed women's participation in politics, and how involved with the political process are younger generations of women? And how equal are men and women in modern central and local government, the workplace, the media, and the home? Comparing New Zealand with both the United Kingdom and Germany, this thought-provoking history is a useful reflection on the position of women in New Zealand society after a period of extensive social and political change.
