What has really happened to New Zealand women’s economic and social status in recent years? In 1994 Prue Hyman published Women and Economics, an overview of the status of women in the New Zealand economy. Much has changed since then – but how much? Has the promise of equality been fulfilled in the labour market? Is unpaid domestic work being given the recognition it deserves? In this BWB Text, Hyman surveys the mixed record of the past two decades, revealing that the work of feminism is not over yet.
