A landmark publication highlighting the achievements and diversity of the women of New Zealand.
Margie Thomson has co-written many books with extraordinary New
Zealanders, and is often recognised for her empathy and her
commitment to truly capturing her subjects' voices with lively
clarity. With Womankind she found a golden opportunity to
filter the life stories of truly amazing women through the lens of
their values - the forces that shaped them into the
community-minded people they all are. A passionate humanitarian,
Margie believes that listening to each others' stories will help us
build a better, kinder future.
Simon Young's fascination with portrait photography began a few weeks into a fine arts degree at Elam in the mid 1980s. That passion has lasted Simon's entire career. Simple real-life honesty is what defines his work - the magic of life captured in one arresting image.
