Women of Influence
New Zealand Herald columnist Lizzie Marvelly empowers young women to speak up and stand out. A feminist advocate, Lizzie’s award-winning blog Villainesse.com provides a platform with an unapologetically female lens; challenging sexist attitudes, calling out injustice, and, most importantly, amplifying young women’s voices.
Anna works with Project Prima Volta and Festival Opera to make places for students to perform, especially those whose families couldn’t support the costs of learning to sing. Join them in a discussion of what can be done to transform young people’s lives.
Lizzie Marvelly and Anna Pierard were 2016 finalists for the Women of Influence Award, which recognises the important contributions of women who inspire us all.
