The New Zealand women featured in these pages show that we have the power, every one of us, to do good. To make change. To be kind. Womankind.
From prime ministers and world-renowned stars of sport and stage to quiet achievers in close-knit communities, this book presents stories of women who make a difference in New Zealand and beyond. A treasured kuia passionate about promoting te reo Māori, a cheerful coffin-maker who believes death doesn’t need to be all doom and gloom, a biologist researching taro-leaf blight while encouraging young people to pursue science, a provider of much needed goods to vulnerable families – all these women are doing their bit to make the world a better place.
Includes Estella Lee, former Pūkorokoro Miranda Naturalists’ Trust Council member, on her connection and contribution to the Trust and conservation.
