I am surrounded by about 50 strong women - Mothers - from African, Indian, Asian, Māori, European and Other descent. Investing in Mothers is investing in families; this is why I keep spending more and more energy on building these relationships. My entrepreneur school and politics are all about putting the power back in the hands of the family; and, who can do it better than the Mother? As a grandmother and mother (and a daughter, sister, aunt, wife) I hope to turn these roles into equity; challenging society to put their money where their mouths are. I honour the achievements of equality fought for by others before me in the areas of women’s health, education and work. However, my aim is to get Mothers recognised, in a monetary manner, purely for being mothers – real leaders. In 2010, I wrote an NZQA Level 9 academic paper titled, Motherhood: from painful privilege to paid position. I now look forward to seeing how this may manifest in the near future.
