Work and Representation: reflections on Maybanke's life and advocacy.
PROFESSOR MARILYN WARING CNZM
What were Maybanke's hopes and expectations for changes in women's work, and for how women might transform the processes and decisions made in the political process, once they had the vote and the right to sit in parliament?
Where is the progress, and what remain the perils for women standing for office?
In the last year Professor Waring has completed research on unpaid work, and her 1975-1984 years as an MP in the New Zealand parliament. What might she and Maybanke have to say to each other across the years?
