On The Rag

On the Rag: September was a month of suffrage and sins

October 2, 2018

Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop

September was a huge month for women both in New Zealand and elsewhere, as we celebrated 125 years of suffrage and watched our Prime Minister hold her baby in the UN's general assembly. There were also things that weren't so great – Leighton Smith whinged a lot and the Brett Kavanaugh saga ripped open some painful wounds once more.

Beyond that, we share our favourite things to watch and read this month, confess to our feminist sins and look at the best Twitter clap backs by our favourite women. Head to our Facebook page for a chance to win The Sound of Breaking Glass by Kirsten Warner, and enjoy The Women’s Bookshop bestsellers for September below.
