Abstract:

New Zealand vaunts itself as first in the world to give women the vote but denies their active role in World War One. Doctors, dentists and ambulance drivers. Munitions workers and mathematicians. Members of the British women's services and managers of hospitals and convalescent homes. Many worked for free, and some paid for amenities whose provision is attributed to men's groups or the government. Echoing our national anthem, let's make their praises heard - after a century of suppression.
