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?

Girlhood in New Zealand

Kiwi Chicks: New Zealand Girl History/Ngā Kōhine Kiwi: He Hitori Taitamāhine o Aotearoais a collections-driven exhibition project that explores girlhood in New Zealand during the 18th-20th centuries, and is co-produced by Girl Museum and National Services Te Paerangi.

In order to preserve NZ girl culture, this project aims to identify "girlhood" objects in New Zealand museums, libraries, archives, schools, historical societies, and art galleries, 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.

If you're interested in participating, you can find out how here. And be sure to visit the exhibition!
