KRIS­TINE BARTLETT, COM­MU­NITY Hav­ing worked in rest homes for years, earn­ing only $14.46 an hour, Kris­tine made his­tory for her­self and count­less other Kiwi women when she cam­paigned for, and won, equal pay for 55,000 care and sup­port work­ers. Backed by her union, E tu¯, Kris­tine’s five-year fight for equal pay led to the government es­tab­lish­ing a work­ing group to de­velop prin­ci­ples for deal­ing with pay-eq­uity claims.
