“In 1971 Sue Kedgley and a group of other young feminists carried a coffin into Auckland’s Albert Park to protest against decades of stagnant advancement for New Zealand women since they won the right to vote in 1893.”

Famous second-wave New Zealand feminists Sue Kedgley and Marilyn Waring share the story of their struggle and achievements over five decades of protest and activism for women’s rights with Linda Clark.
