Last Friday was International Women's Day which is celebrated annually as focal point of women's rights. This year Jemima noticed the presence of gender equality discussions on social media sky rocket around International Women's Day and wanted to learn more about whether a social media post truely combats gender inequality. In this interview, Jemima speaks to the President of the National Council of Women, Vanisa Dhiru, to answer this question.
This week Jemima speaks to Green Party co-leader James Shaw about tax evasion, capital gains taxes, and the Schools Strike for Climate Action. Lachlan discusses the possibility of lightrail over the Waitematā Harbour with Matt Lowrie from Transport Blog. Lachlan also speaks to Peter Malcom from Closing the Gap about income inequality and tax rates in New Zealand. Jemima wraps it up with an interview with the President of the National Council of Women about International Women's Day and the how social media is impacting the gender equality movement.
A recent report released by AT shows the need for a new Waitemata harbour crossing by the mid 2030s. The report highlighted the need for alternative transport options that move away from traditional notions of needing more roads. One of these is the option of a rail link between the Shore and Mainland. Lachlan spoke with Matt Lowrie from Transport blog about the possibility of a rail crossing.
