Marilyn Waring: The Political Years

Marilyn Waring: The Political Years

Saturday 31 August 2019, 3:00pm—4:00pm

Marilyn Waring’s new book 'The Political Years' looks at her extraordinary years in parliament. She tells the story of her journey from being elected as a new National Party MP in a conservative rural seat to being publicly decried by the Robert Muldoon for her ‘feminist anti-nuclear stance’ that threatened to bring down his government. Her tale of life in a male-dominated and relentlessly demanding political world is both uniquely of its time and still of pressing relevance today.

Marilyn Waring’s new book 'The Political Years' looks at her extraordinary years in parliament. She tells the story of her journey from being elected as a new National Party MP in a conservative rural seat to being publicly decried by the Robert Muldoon for her ‘feminist anti-nuclear stance’ that threatened to bring down his government. Her tale of life in a male-dominated and relentlessly demanding political world is both uniquely of its time and still of pressing relevance today.

Waring’s other new book, 'Still Counting', follows up on her ground-breaking work 'Counting for Nothing', in which she explained, through meticulous economic analysis, how the success of the global economy rests on women’s unpaid work. Today, many people hope that the shift to a wellbeing approach will mean women’s work is finally valued fairly. But what does Marilyn Waring make of it?

In this unmissable session, Waring talks politics, women, and wellbeing economics with Bronwyn Hayward.
