Author Talk: Woman Mean Business
By Catherine Bishop
When: Wednesday 13 November
Where: Tauranga Library
In the nineteenth century, we are told, a woman’s place was in the home. But take a look beyond the public rhetoric and women can be found engaged in commercial activities throughout New Zealand.
From a travelling midwife to a tragic school proprietor in the Bay of Plenty area and beyond, explore the successful and the outright failures, the heart-warming and the tragic, the everyday and the scandalous stories of colonial New Zealand businesswomen.
