This book gives New Zealand women Members of Parliament (MPs) of the nineteen-eighties and nineties a rare chance to speak for themselves, to go beyond the constraints of the sound-bite and reflect upon the interplay between their public and private lives. They talk freely about the way Parliament is run, about their individual philosophies, and about the barriers facing anyone entering political life. They present a series of shrewd, contrasting, and opinionated insights into life around the House as experienced by Parliamentary women and their male colleagues. This compelling volume, which includes photographs and biographical notes of all women who have been MPs in New Zealand, is the first to talk about women and politics in a readable, relaxed, and accessible manner.
