City Gallery and Radio New Zealand mark Suffrage 125 with a second series of panel discussions exploring contemporary feminism. These discussions build upon the lively national conversations that took place during Cindy Sherman last year.

RNZ’s Māori News correspondent Leigh-Marama McLachlan and panel explore feminism and ethnicity. How culturally specific is feminism? How does the skin we’re born in determine our relationship with gender equality? How do cultural practices and traditions challenge or support feminism?

Speakers include:
- Sacha McMeeking is the head of Aotahi, the School of Māori and Indigenous Studies at the University of Canterbury.
- Donna Miles-Mojab is a British-born, Iranian-bred New Zealander interested in justice and human rights issues. She works as a freelance journalist and gallery guide.
- Tuiloma Lina‑Jodi Samu is the Pasifika advisor at the Human Rights Commission.
- Farida Sultana, Founder of Shakti New Zealand and Shakti Australia, the culturally specialist support service for Asian, Middle Eastern, and African women.

In association with 'Arwa Alneami: Never Never Land'. Recorded for broadcast by RNZ.

Doors open 5.30pm. Cash bar open until 6pm and again after the panel discussion to continue the conversation.
