Story: Women and men

Trapped by sexism

Trapped by sexism

Sexist society was one of New Zealand's early women’s liberation publications, containing stories from a wide range of people about their lives. Through these stories the experience of men and women in a sexist society was laid out for the reader. Men were also seen as trapped by sexism, although in different and less denigrating ways than women.
