Who's Counting? + Q&A with Marilyn Waring at the Film Archive

Posted Tuesday 26 Nov 2013


mediatheatre 6pm

84 Taranaki Street



Film, 1995, Exempt, director Terre Nash, 94 min + Q&A approx 30 min

On 28 November 1893 New Zealand women voted in the general election for the first time. We celebrate the 120 year anniversary of this milestone by hosting Marilyn Waring - the renowned feminist, politician, activist, author and academic - for a special event. Join us for a screening of Who's Counting: Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies & Global Economics (1995), followed by a Q&A with Waring.

120 years have passed since New Zealand women won the vote, so it is timely to reflect upon the notion of equality within the current economic model - a value system in which all goods and activities are related only to their monetary value. As a result, unpaid work (usually performed by women) is unrecognised, while activities that may be environmentally and socially detrimental are deemed productive. InWho's Counting Waring looks at these issues and maps out an alternative vision.

The film will screen again (without a Q&A) on Wednesday 4 December, at 7pm.
