New Zealand Labour Party

In Conversation: Women in Politics

They reside in the political corridors of power. Hear what they have to say.

On 13 September 1933 the Labour Party’s Elizabeth McCombs became New Zealand’s first woman member of Parliament.

89 years later, we have more than 20 women members in Parliament. But is that still not enough? Do women need more representation in the Beehive?

Get a better insight as a panel of women politicians will reflect on their experiences as candidates and members of Parliament.

This event is hosted by Wellington Museum.
