Exciting news! Voices of Women is now available on CD...

Jenni Murphy-Scanlon from PACT (Performing Arts Community Trust)

We are absolutely delighted to let you know that 'Voices of Women - a celebration of the successful struggle by women to gain the vote' is now available on CD from Marbeck's in-store or online here: www.marbecks.co.nz...

With its release so close to Suffrage Day (same as General Elections day this year on 19 September), this will make a wonderful gift for the women in your life. Huge aroha to all the women who made this project possible - from the poets and speakers present and past, composer, musicians and vocalists. The CD has been released by Atoll Records and is an album that New Zealand can be proud of - and the Waikato can be very proud that another international quality arts project has come from here.

Special thanks to our key sponsors without whom the concert and recording could not have happened - WEL Energy Trust, Trust Waikato, CCS (Creative Waikato and Hamilton City Council), Norah Howell Trust, University of Waikato and private donors.
