Kia ora.

 

Help us bring Women and Women’s Organisations from across New Zealand together for a Convention on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment. 

 

Te Whare Pora – The Weaving House – is a Home-Woven Convention on Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment being held in Wanaka  from Friday 8th to 9th April 2016.

 

                            Weave with us to forward Gender Equality in 2016.

 

Te Whare Pora; The Weaving House Convention will voyage through two days of discussion & learning with a crucial diversity of thought and experience. 

 

Women leaders in topical fields, will talk on issues such as Human Rights, Domestic Violence, Gender Pay Equity, Women in the Media, Women in Politics, Education, Health, New Zealand Women in History, Security, the Global Goals and much more.  

 

These will be perspectives from New Zealand Women who have in-depth understanding of our institutions and current status.

 

 

Women face Rights Violations in every town and city of New Zealand today. Do we drop the chain now? We didn’t recommit to the Global Goals at the recent United Nations Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Global Leader’s Meeting, our Domestic Violence record is increasing at an alarming rate, there is still no Gender Pay Equity and services are cut to areas women occupy before ensuring Women’s Rights are secure.

 

Social Media has garnered us limitless opportunity to connect in reaching a common goal, to meet in the physical world though creates magic. Our coming together, can only serve to strengthen those bonds and ties to create resilience within a world divided.

 

This gathering provides us with the opportunity to see the many colour and patterns of our weave, it provides us with opportunity to be prepared for the many major international meetings ahead and the many challenges which face us at a local level.

 

The event is free; with the opportunity of Koha at the door, a donation for the local Wanaka Women’s Support Group

Your Patronage will assist Te Whare Pora in building our loom & securing our gathering place, provide for materials and sustenance and become a strengthening weft for delegates to get on with the task at hand. 

Every 3 years Te Whare Pora Charitable Trust also hopes to assist a New Zealand Women creating services For Women in New Zealand into business. there's much we hope to achieve.

Your contribution will enable women to move forth from Te Whare Pora at a swifter pace, pivotal in meeting a dire need for social change.

Contributors are all weavers of Te Whare Pora, each a thread sewn.

 

We’ll also be celebrating the Arts of Woman and Hineteiwaiwa Goddess of Te Whare Pora – The Weaving House. An inspiration for the thirst of deeper knowledge she represents our creativity and is atua of childbirth.

 

Help us bring Women and Women’s Organisations from across New Zealand together by contributing to this event. We may find or formulate solutions; we will be inspired and woven collectively. We know, we’ve much to offer, we’ve much to do, our needs are simple our capacities great, the time is NOW to weave anew.

 

 

We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing” – Louisa May Alcott.

 

Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be bought into connection with action. They must be woven together” – Anais Nin

 

ngā mahi a te whare pora …… the art of weaving

 

 

 

                                                            WHY

 

               “We cannot all succeed when half of us are held backMalalaYoysafzai

 

In New Zealand we’ve relative peace, prosperity and the absence of war and women and men are provided with equal and universal human rights through a strong statutory framework with comprehensive protection against all forms of discrimination. The Equal Pay Act of 1972, the Human Rights Act of 1993 and the Domestic Violence Act of 1995 are three such documents, yet women in every town and city of New Zealand today and across our world face rights violations. Violations enacted upon them due to gender inequality. 

 

How long are we to remain a wholly unrepresented people?" Mary Anne Muller 1869. New Zealand

 

Women continue to be worse off than men in areas ranging from safety and health to jobs and income.

New Zealand is a leader with staggering statistics for domestic violence in the OECD.   Women’s refuge in New Zealand receives on average a call every nine minutes of every day. Steadily the number of disclosed incidents rise and police estimate that only 18-25% of domestic violence incidents in NZ are reported. There are now close to 100 000 investigations each year. Our courts engage with about 20 prosecutions of assault on women by men each court day, 91% of protection orders are made by women and we can currently expect the death of a woman in New Zealand every 8 weeks in a domestic dispute.

Violence directed specifically at women is endemic across the world. We look to Australia and count the figures, 2 dead women each week, in the UK a woman dead every three days. Look to India and we lose 22 women a day, humanitarian agencies put the number at over 80. The most prevalent form is Domestic Violence and too many nations have no laws against it.  Sexual and family violence within New Zealand comes in at a combined 6.5 billion dollars per year. Women’s refuge supports a higher figure of 8 billion dollars for domestic violence alone.  Right NOW, we’ve no time to waste. 

 

Women are akin to our Koru. We survive adverse conditions, we carry new life and are determined to regenerate and grow.

 

The Gender Pay Gap in New Zealand remains, we’ve fallen to an average of 19% of women in senior management roles and only 33% of our Members of Parliament are women. Women in parliament has nearly doubled in the last twenty years yet the global average proportion of women in parliaments is about 21.4%. Women occupy few positions of political and legal authority.

 

It is known that where women’s lives improve, all benefit and Gender Equality can only be achieved when women and men enjoy the same opportunities, rights and obligations in all spheres of life. It is now agreed amongst most nations that Gender Equality is the precondition for advancing development, peace and reducing poverty. We can do this.  

 

Good seed, good soil. Skip back 146 years in NZ history and we find women thinkers aware of the potential of a common and equal humanity. Women who saw the link between Women’s rights and Human Rights, between an inclusive society and a peaceful state. Mary Anne Muller in 1869 clearly observed and rightly envisaged "Our women are brave and strong, with an amount of self-reliance, courage and freedom from conventionalities eminently calculated to form a great nation". She demanded “Give them scope". Mary Ann Muller challenged "This change is coming, but why is New Zealand only to follow? Why not take the initiative?"

 

At home we’re at crisis point with domestic violence, over one in three women having violence enacted upon them. We’re also in a moment where greater strides towards improving Gender Equality are possible given the opportunity.  The sooner Women and Women’s Organisations have the opportunity to come together, the sooner we can weave change into the fabric of our land.  Te Whare Pora – The Weaving House, is one such opportunity.

 

 

                                                              

                                                                HOW

 

 

I am not free while any women is unfree even if her shackles are very different from my own” Audre Lorde.

 

Our Convention is offering us the opportunity to be informed, provide an audit of our current status and an offering of solutions for a way forward. To find ways in which we could improve upon our position within our nation and beyond our shores. 

 

125 years ago, our own Kate Sheppard wrote words that resonate today. 

 

Slowly but surely our cause is gaining ground. The principal of the rights of the individual irrespective of sex may be said to have taken root, and while it still needs to be carefully nourished, so that its roots may strike deeper, and the branches spread far and wide yet the blighting influences of prejudice and self-interest are gradually dying away, and we trust will soon vanish all together.”

 

Te Whare Pora is a National Feminist Hui for Women and Women’s Organisations to gather and view the tapestry of Women’s current position within New Zealand society and beyond. We hope for this event to create a warm cohesion amongst the Women of New Zealand as an opportunity to be inspired by the company of each other, updated and informed on issues of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment and to help define todays weave in preparation to weave anew. 

 

When women live in full partnership families, communities and our world would flourish. Assist us with the loom for our tapestry and let us see how far the ripple.

 

Te Whare Pora is a Charitable Trust. Our event is not for profit and the Convention is free. Many Women’s Organisations rely heavily upon donations and have nothing to spare. We hope to give every opportunity for all to attend. Women earn %11.8 to 14% less than men whilst performing 63% of unpaid work within New Zealand. Two-Thirds of minimum wage earners over the age of 25 in New Zealand are women.

The desire to attend Te Whare Pora becomes an investment by women for knowledge, experience and possible solutions that are priceless. Women from our formal institutions, organisations and communities wish to attend and contribute to a stronger more peaceful, prosperous and unified New Zealand. 

Contributors are all weavers of Te Whare Pora, each a thread sewn.

All of our speaker's talks, messages from Women's Organisations and our Women Members of Parliament will be available in our final report.

We have a strong desire to achieve our stated goals and gratefully with your assistance, a striking tapestry for today.      ………….. ngā mahi a te whare pora.

By forwarding The Rights of Women, we forward the rights and abilities of All People to live fulfilled lives.  Let's weave.

 

                               Our needs are simple, our capacities are great.

 

 

                                                A thought on our history.

 

"Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. It's battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety in the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centres, women's refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says "Oh, I'm not a feminist", I ask "Why? What's your problem?"  .....Dale Spender.

 

Kua roa kē te wā e pōti ana ētahi tāngata.   Some people have had the vote for a long time. 

 

There was a ripple in our modern world. From this wave, voting rights for women were first won in 1893 in our land of the long white cloud Aotearoa. To date our participation has created positive outcomes. We're eloquent with our newly won tools. We’ve been effecting legislation, influencing political doctrine, changing the rule of law

Most changes to women's voting rights have been more recent than the South Pacific ripple of 1893. It can be a struggle in itself for our memory to not forget.

Swiss women won the right to vote in 1971. In South Africa white women in 1931, Indian and coloured women in 1984 and black women in 1994. Women in Saudi Arabia have just, as of last month, December 2015 voted for the first time.

Women are proven champions of peace, for children, the underprivileged and the environment. We are participating and excelling within the freedoms now available to us as we face many challenges of our times. The future will provide its own challenges to further generations of women. What position will we have them in to enact change and live fulfilled lives? 

Through our institutions, from our homes and within our communities, we have improved the lives of women and all people for the better. There have been some noteworthy moments for Gender Equality in 2015, and according to the World Economic Forums Gender Index New Zealand has marginally improved. 

The majority of those in poverty are Women. Women continue to face sexism in their daily lives, in our educational institutions and in the  halls of politics and power. We've still too high a rate of maternal mortality and Women face high rates of gender specific violence. Two thirds of illiterate adults globally remain Women. How does she educate herself? How does she vote?

What appears simple, safety, access to water,  mid-wives, a toilet,  school books, a bank account, education, the freedom to wear trousers or a short skirt, equal pay, a license to drive, a stroll in the park after dark, a passport to travel, be acknowledged as a citizen, obtain divorce, property and autonomy of self, body and soul, have been hard won battles not all yet won. For those won on paper, not all as yet to materialise.

The history of woman is as long as man’s, yet the history of woman’s freedom is still in its infancy, a few generations old. Until 1983 the Australian husband would authorise the application for a passport for his wife. Only four decades ago in parts of Europe women required a husbands  consent to enter the work force.

In 1979 women won what was essentially our first International Bill of Rights. In 1993 at The World Conference on Human Rights, Human Right’s became Women’s Rights and Women’s Rights became Human Rights. By the year 2000 women were permitted under the Convention to take complaints of rights violations to the United Nations.

 

                      Our position is unprecedented, yet also in great need of support.

 

 

 

 

Today women face rights violations in every town and city of New Zealand. Today, decisions are made within New Zealand and throughout the globe without the principal of harmony. Gender is the most fundamental of all human division and none of the other United Nations  Global Goals are possible without Goal 5, Gender Equality.

 

Women suffrage can never again be buried; the very stones would cry out against such an outrage. But we do not anticipate failure, the very worst that can happen is postponement.”  Kate Sheppard, 1892.  New Zealand. Aotearoa.

 

 

Cast on cast off, how far the ripple?

    Thank you to our pledgers. The knowledge of your support a pleasure and boon on its own. Our campaign, with five hours to go, doesn't look to be successful. If you'd still like to support Te Whare Pora in our initiative please contact us via our email [email protected] 

    -Whakawhetai koe from the heart-

    I don't know who said it "nothing worth having comes easy" Gender Equality is just one of those things.

     We continue to weave in Te Whare Pora.
