I was interested to read a third of NZ women believe they still don't have equal rights. Is it that the survey company defined rights in a foolish way, that the respondents have a confused definition of rights, or just that a third of NZ women are into special pleading?
It's a genuine question. There must be the odd feminist who comes by here, if only to experience a thrill of horror and revulsion at the contents - is there an actual rights gap, or is it just special pleading?
I've had a look at the Research New Zealand site, and there's no mention of this survey on it, so everything I know about it is from the brief NZPA report.
