Auckland Museum panel discussion: Mana Wahine

The history and current state of feminism was the subject of a lively panel discussion recorded by Radio New Zealand at the Auckland Museum.

“According to Dr Pala Molisa, pay inequality is one of the most fundamental economic issues that a lot of women fought for in the early years of feminism, and it’s still a problem today.

However, he thinks that it’s really only one of the symptoms of gender inequality which exists in a patriarchal culture greatly affected by colonisation. “We really can’t start to get our heads around pay equity,” he adds, “until you start confronting the wider structural realities of colonisation as a whole.”

Not necessarily so, according to Dr Ngahuia Te Awekotuku.”
