Title: Pay Packets & Stone Walls: A Memoir of Women's Causes & Love of the Land

A pioneering feminists candid memoir.

Candid, tenacious and illuminating, Elizabeth Orrs memoir is a rich account of a 50-year dedication to campaigning for equal pay. With an eye for humour and self-appraisal, Orr shows us sides of New Zealand life that will surprise many readers, alongside the practical importance of good typing and a marriage of true partnership. The year 1972, alongside 1893, deserves attention as a national and global milestone in the history of New Zealands politics of equality. Orr is central to that story.

Charlotte Macdonald, Professor of History, Victoria University of Wellington

This book is a wonderful account of the battle for pay equity for New Zealand women. Elizabeth Orrs determination and perseverance through decades of triumphs, reversals and disappointments ensured the fire was never extinguished. Working with Elizabeth and the other members of the Coalition for Equal Value Equal Pay on the Kristine Bartlett case was a privilege and the highlight of my professional career.
