[1993 is the Centennial Year of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand.
To mark the occasion, the Waiatarau- Freeman's Bay branch of Te Roopu Waahine Toka i te Ora (Māori Women's Welfare League) in collaboration with Te Reo O Aotearoa, devised a radio programme series backgrounding the lives of several prominent Māori women.
Interviews were made in both Māori and English. The interviewers were Puhi Rangiaho, Tawini Rangihau, Hemana Waaka and Hēnare te Ua.
Dame Georgina Kirby, former President of the NZ Māori Women's Welfare League and present President of the Waiatarau branch gave the series the name, Maioha.
Maioha is the ihi and ha inherent in a woman's karanga.
The series was broadcast in Te Reo O Aotearoa's Te Reo o Te Pipiwharauroa and He Rerenga Kōrero programmes through National Radio.]
In part one of Maioha, Rose Pere from Waikaremoana is interviewed by Puhi Rangiaho.
Rose Pere speaks about her upbringing as a youngster and about her days as a student at primary school and then at Hukarere College.
She then speaks about the importance of the stance of women on the marae and their contribution to Society in today's world. She says the greatest privilege which women have is to conceive and nuture children. It is important to take time out for oneself and pamper oneself because women deserve to spoil themselves now and again.
