It's 125 years since New Zealand women won the right to vote. But the battle for the right to so much else is ongoing. This first volume in the Te Papa `Thinking About' series is published to mark the 125th anniversary of suffrage, and brings together provocative, insightful and energetically argued essays by 12 leading New Zealand writers and thinkers, based around objects from Te Papa's collection. Sandra Coney, Holly Walker, Barbara Brookes, Tina Makereti, Sue Bradford, Morgan Godfery, Golriz Ghahraman, Dame Fiona Kidman, Ben Schrader, Charlotte MacDonald, Grace Taylor and Megan Whelan examine how New Zealand women have fared since 1893.
