Poetry Shelf noticeboard: The launch of ‘Kate Edger: The life of a pioneering feminist’ by Diana Morrow.

Otago University Press warmly invites you to celebrate the launch of Kate Edger: The life of a pioneering feminist by Diana Morrow.

In 1877, Kate Edger became the first woman to graduate from a New Zealand university. She went on to become a pioneer of women’s education in New Zealand and worked tirelessly to mitigate violence against women and children. Diana Morrow tells the story of this remarkable woman’s life and, in the process, provides valuable insights into the role of women social reformers in our history and Edger’s place within a distinctive strand of Christian feminism.
