Every time you have a good idea you can be damn sure someone else thought of it first

In June the Women's Studies Association of NZ sent out a survey to political parties questioning them on their policies in a number of areas of particular pertinence to the women of Aotearoa, especially those pesky feminist ones. They received responses from most of the Parliamentary parties and you can have a good ol' read of the questions, and the answers, from their index page.

They've asked about some really key policy areas, such as pay equity, domestic violence, the role of the Ministry of Women's Affairs, and the gender balance of candidates within each party. Certainly some interesting reading for the long weekend!

Hat tipped to the Luddite Journo.
