Today is International Women’s Day, the day when we mark the progress made by women in gender equality.

We also use the day to plan for the future of women’s rights.

To discuss the celebration, Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei joined Paul Henry.

She says the leadership role New Zealand women hold has gone backwards over the last decade and she wants the Women’s Affairs portfolio should be returned to cabinet.
