Paper Dolls Taken to NZ Parliament

On Friday 7th March, the eve of International Women’s Day, Positive Women Inc. was invited to present two hundred paper dolls to Labour MP Carol Beaumont, Spokesperson for Women’s Affairs, on the steps of Parliament.

Around 9 a.m. that day two staff members from PWI – Jane Bruning, National Coordinator and Judith Mukakayange, Health Promoter – and representatives from Glyde Healthcare NZ, Body Positive, the New Zealand AIDS Foundation, the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective, and M.A.C stood with us as Jane presented the dolls and a petition. Each paper doll had a message of support for female condoms written on them. The intention is that Carol Beaumont will present our petition on behalf of PWI to the Ministry of Health when they meet to discuss the MedSafe recommendation that the standard for female condoms be approved making them available in New Zealand..
