Last week Don Brash once again gave his quite negative opinion on Māori. He was asked on RNZ to respond to a listener who described the Haka as a valuable part of the country's cultural identity. His response frustrated and saddened me but also got me thinking about language, culture and interpretation. These were topics which were discussed with Margaret Mutu last week so I made a report as an extension of last week's interview. 

Thanks to the following sources; Hohepa Tiponi for AIG, Lillian HanlyRNZTe Kura Māori o nga Tapuwae and the composers of Tāmaki ki te Tonga Mōrikarika (The dregs of South Auckland).

New Zealand is celebrating the 125th birthday of the Electoral Act which granted all women above the age of 21 in Aotearoa New Zealand the right to vote. Across the country, the suffragettes' achievement are being acknowledged, as well as that of all pioneering wahine from then and now. 

But if this piece of legislation made New Zealand the first self-governing country in the world to access universal suffrage, let's not forget the long roads that still awaits women to reach equality.  

Lisa talks to Dr Jackie Blue, the Equal Employment Opportunities and Women’s rights Commissioner at the Human Rights Commission. They discuss the landmark legislation, its modern ramifications, but also the challenges ahead.
