Description

A landmark book of profiles and portraits celebrating the successes and diversity of New Zealand women across many spheres – politics, arts, science, community development, business innovation and health.
These leaders share their views on what it's like to be a woman in New Zealand today- the contributions they are most proud of, challenges they have faced and still face, dreams they have and goals for the role of New Zealand women. The range of women covers diverse fields, ages and ethnic backgrounds – from household names like Jacinda Ardern and Helen Clark, Malvina Major and Portia Woodman, to unsung heroines of the suburbs – a Kiwi Samoan scientist, the first Indian-born female police officer, and a maker of coffins!
These more than 50 New Zealand women have set out to make a difference in the world, whether that be on a global stage, or in their local communities.

Author Biography

Margie Thomson has co-written many books with extraordinary New Zealanders, and is often recognised for her empathy and her commitment to truly capturing her subjects' voices with lively clarity. With Womankind she found a golden opportunity to filter the life stories of truly amazing women through the lens of their values – the forces that shaped them into the community-minded people they all are. A passionate humanitarian, Margie believes that listening to each others' stories will help us build a better, kinder future.

Simon Young's fascination with portrait photography began a few weeks into a fine arts degree at Elam in the mid 1980s. That passion has lasted Simon's entire career. Simple real-life honesty is what defines his work – the magic of life captured in one arresting image.
