At the height of the second wave feminist movement in Aotearoa New Zealand women artists campaigned both for equality within the arts and for wider socio-political change. Many also diligently recorded their activities. Performance works were filmed, interviews conducted, letters demanding action sent and received, meetings minuted and manifestos written and circulated. Ideas were chronicled in scrapbooks, protest marches photographed, posters designed, and publications established and distributed.
