By the late 1960s, the optimism of the post-war period had begun to fray. Change was in the air and new voices rang out in the streets and classrooms. In the following two decades, many people expressed dissatisfaction with aspects of New Zealand society. They drew inspiration from international struggles for civil rights and opposition to imperialism and militarism.

‘Fight the Power: Protest and Change 1970-1990’ examines social campaigns during the 1970s and 80s. These included the Women’s Liberation Movement and the 1979 United Women’s Conference, the Raglan Golf Course Māori land rights dispute and opposition to the Hamilton game of the 1981 Springbok rugby tour.
