Twenty Years On: Looking at Gender Equality

  • Geraldine Mcdonald


A conference in 1995 provided the opportunity to find out what had happened to equality for women and girls in education over the twenty years since International Women’s Year, the report of the Select Committee on Women’s Rights, and the landmark conference on Education and the Equality of the Sexes. This chapter compares the issues for women in 1975 with those of 1995, assesses the gains and the losses, and notes changes in the way in which Maori and non-Maori women have viewed the issues.
