Waring (public policy, Auckland U. of Technology) is a noted New
Zealand feminist and author, and she has collected her own writings
from the Listener that cover such topics as patriarchal violence, important
women in international politics, New Zealand’s nuclear free policy and
her 1985 trip to China. Written primarily for women (the author has
stated that “I do not care to bother to explain myself to men anymore”),
this volume also contains previously unpublished articles on Waring’s
views of power and politics that were formed during her years as a
member of parliament. A final section is devoted to the author’s interest
in Canada and includes an open letter to the G7 leaders.
