Kōrero: Men and women in the city

Bar, 1971

Bar, 1971

In the 1970s feminists ‘liberated’ their city’s public bars by demanding to be served. Their actions made it easier for women to enter the formerly male domain to drink and socialise. In this 1971 view of a bar in Wellington’s Hotel De Brett, men and women chat around a table while a pub band plays in the background.
