Social and Literary Constraints on Women Writers in New Zealand 1945 to 1970

May 6, 2011

I have recently completed a PhD in Gender and Women’s Studies at Victoria University of Wellington and I will graduate on the 18th of May 2011

My thesis is titled: ‘Social and Literary Constraints on Women Writers in  New Zealand1945 to 1970’. It explores the reasons why so few NZ women writers attained literary prominence during the period from the end of WW2 up to the feminist movement of the 1970s. Among other things I explore the writing of Māori women and their particular difficulties with being published. My thesis was supervised by Dr. Alison Laurie and Associate Professor Prue Hyman.
