A shin­ing light

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - YOUR LETTERS - K. LA­TIMER

I found Judy Bai­ley’s in­ter­view with Carol Hirschfeld very in­for­ma­tive and in­spi­ra­tional. Carol’s mother was Maori and her fa­ther Pakeha and in 1950s New Zealand they would have en­dured racism. Carol was os­tracised as a young girl too but learned to negate crit­i­cism and suc­ceeded in her jour­nal­ism ca­reer. She is now a role model for young Maori women and also enjoys be­ing a mother of her two chil­dren, who are also high achiev­ers. Kia kaha Carol. You are a shin­ing light to both Maori and Pakeha New Zealan­ders.
