September marks the coincidence of the 70th Anniversary of Eleanor Roosevelt's tour of New Zealand and the Pacific, and the 120th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand. Embassy officer Dorothy Mayhew took the opportunity to interview Minister of Women's Affairs Jo Goodhew about what these anniversaries meant for her, what challenges she feels women in Aotearoa still face, and how she has managed the balance of a life in politics and a life with family.

President Obama: Five decades ago today, Americans came to this honored place to lay claim to a promise made at our founding: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

President Obama's framed program from the original March on Washington sits in the Oval Office.

Tune in today at 2:45pm ET—50 years later—to hear him speak at the Let Freedom Ring ceremony about how far we've come, and why we need to keep marching —> http://wh.gov/live #MLKDream50

On September 5th (NZ time), U.S. Embassy Wellington, New Zealand, hosted a live discussion, "Eleanor Roosevelt: Legacies and Leadership", which featured Marie Damour, Deputy Chief of Mission; Gillian Peacock, chair of Volunteering NZ; and Vanisa Dhiru CEO of Volunteering NZ. The focus was human rights, and especially the rights of women and other minorities. Wellington's studio provided the setting for a local viewing party and international CO.NX portal and Facebook viewers with an interest in gender issues, foreign policy, politics and the legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt. Looking at the issues from a New Zealand perspective, the panelists focused primarily on NZ's work with the UN, with CEDAW and in promoting womens' rights in NZ and in the Pacific.
