Book cover: Harpies & Heroines: A cartoon history of women’s changing roles in New Zealand

Tells the story, in cartoons and text, of the revolution in the lives of New Zealand women in the 110 years since they gained the vote – as they have travelled the often bumpy road from economic dependence to emancipation and from traditional domestic confines to the most public of roles. Compiled and annotated by Rachel Macfarlane and Cerridwyn Young of the New Zealand Cartoon Archive, it includes a timeline of key events and a lively introduction written by Dale Williams.
