Speech by Sue Kedgley to the launch of the WEPs in Gisborne, 4 August 2015

It is an astonishing fact that women have been discriminated against throughout all of human history, in every society, in every religion and in every culture in the world.

We've seen a gender gap when it comes to women in retirement savings. Women generally earn less in terms of wages. That leads to a gap in savings of course which leads to a gap in retirement. ANZ announced yesterday it will be contributing to the KiwiSavers of its employees on parental leave- that's men or women, and employers generally are being asked to help fill the gap. UN Women New Zealand president Angela McLeod is with us.

International Women's Day: Dame Anne Salmond's Speech

Women and Democracy

I find myself strangely at home here in Parliament. As they say, “In politics, itsdog eat dog; whereas in academia, it’s precisely the reverse.”

On International Women’s Day, we can paraphrase a hymn that I used to singat boarding school, ‘Let us now praise famous women, and our mothers thatbegat us.’ Its important for us to do this, lest they be forgotten. As VirginiaWoolf, the great Bloomsbury novelist, noteded acerbically, ‘For most of history,Anonymous was a woman.’
