Therese O’Connell: 2017 Rona Bailey Memorial Lecture

The Labour History Project regularly organises the Rona Bailey Memorial Lecture, a biennial public lecture looking at labour history in New Zealand, often through a creative lens.

In 2017 the lecture was given by Therese Frances O’Connell, entitled ‘Stories and Songs’.

Therese is a full-time feminist who has been a unionist and social justice activist in Wellington since the early 1970s. She spoke and sung (with friends) about what still rarks her up!
