One of the defining things about writing a local history is the material available.

When I wrote in 2007 about work on the factory floor at Manawatu Knitting Mills (MKM) I had a wonderful group of women (and a few men) who had experience of working there and who were willing to be interviewed and to share their stories.

In 2018 my access was to a mountain of written documents, many of them from 1958. These would then be used to look at MKM from the perspective of managing the business in a particular era of economic stress in New Zealand. Where, if anywhere, did women fit into this story?

Speaker: Jill White
Second Floor, Central Library - tea and coffee provided.
