A good example [of sexism] is when the space agency said that they couldn’t have women astronauts, because in a situation of weightlessness their breasts would float around ... and distract the male astronauts.– Phillida Bunkle, Victoria University Women’s Studies lecturer
It’s inevitable that if any woman is interested in politics enough to be active herself personally, I think it’s inevitable that she would be a 'feminist'. She would be looking at her own life and her own situation in political terms.– Cathy Wilson, Values Party deputy leader (the first woman to achieve party leadership)
Bucking political parties and taking the touchy abortion issue into a seaman’s den are in many ways symbolic of a growing mood of a number of New Zealand women, who want to change the ‘old boys’ system.– From the narration, on Kay Goodger, Socialist candidate (Sydenham)
I don’t think they [women] understand the power that they have to change the structure. After all they’re 51% of the vote ... but that’s not reflected in the final result.– Dorothy Jelicich, Labour MP, on getting more women into power
