Hitting the headlines

Our IWD event had a good write-up in the local paper today, complete with an excellent picture taken by staff photographer Jane Dawber. The photo showed a group of intrepid women at the foot of the mountain, smiling and waving as they resolutely set out to achieve their goal.

Here's the headline and the caption (can't find a link to this report on the ODT web site yet):

Curran leads Women's Day walk

Labour Dunedin South Women's Branch members walk up Harbour Cone, in Dunedin, on International Women's Day yesterday to celebrate the gains of women, while also acknowledging the challenges they would face in the tough times of an economic recession. Dunedin South MP Clare Curran, seen here holding aloft a bunch of flowers, led the walk. Ms Curran said she particularly wanted to highlight the gender pay disparity in New Zealand, as women on average earned 12% less than men.
