A recently retired university administrator and history faculty, I seek a new avenue for my creative output. Now that New Zealand is my home, I want to learn everything about its history and in particular the role of women. Using cross-cultural research, I hope to contribute a new perspective to an internationally important “first” of New Zealand – the right for women to vote at the national level.
