The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

New exhibition: Kiwi Chicks

Girl Museum is proud to launch our new community exhibition for the Art of Girlhood series, Kiwi Chicks: New Zealand Girl History/Nga Kohine Kiwi: He Hitori Taitamahine o Aotearoa. This ongoing project explores girlhood in New Zealand during the 18th-20th centuries.

In order to preserve New Zealand girl culture, this project aims to identify ‘girlhood’ objects in New Zealand museums, libraries, archives, schools, historical societies, and art galleries, and then create an exciting exhibition that informs and inspires girls of today with the stories, achievements, and struggles of yesterday’s girls, as well as reaching a general audience.

Kiwi Chicks is presented in partnership with National Services Te Paerangi.
