Celebrate New Zealand Music Month and Suffrage 125
Join us to celebrate New Zealand Music Month and Suffrage 125 with the singing stars of the 1970s and 1980s women's movement.
Protest songs of the 1970s and 1980s
Expect a roller-coaster ride with the Feisty Feckin' Fulltime Feminists through the politics of equal pay, discrimination, harassment and reproductive rights, with lashings of fighting spirit.
Singing stars of the 1970s and 1980s women's movement take the stage again with some new additions — reviving some of the songs they sang to keep spirits up on the picket line or at strategising sessions.
Some of the lyrics were made up more or less on the spot to a borrowed tune, to mark a particular occasion; other songs came from feminists in Auckland, Australia or beyond.
Audience advisory: frequent use of strong language.
