Feature: Mana Wahine

Two new online readers bring together previously published and some new writings on Mana Wahine.

Mana Wahine reader: A collection of writings 1987-1998, Volume I and Mana Wahine reader: A collection of writings 1999-2019, Volume II are edited by Leonie Pihama, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Naomi Simmonds, Joeliee Seed-Pihama and Kirsten Gabel.
The readers were developed in response to "many requests for references related to Mana Wahine and/or Māori women's writings on Māori feminist approaches" (Preface, Vol 1). The editors say: 
"Many of the early writings in this area are difficult to access and as such have become less well known or utilised as a basis for thinking about issues that impact upon Māori women. The growing articulation of the need for intersectionality has prompted more conversations around how we as Māori and Indigenous Peoples engage with the multiple intersecting beliefs, ideologies and practices that both inform, and impact upon, our lives." 
The readers are available for free download.

Identity and help in calls to Victim Support
Emma G. Tennent
PhD thesis, Victoria University of Wellington, 2019

Summary: The link between identity and action is a fundamental topic across the social sciences. A key site to investigate this relationship is social interaction, where identities and social relations are built and used to accomplish action. In this thesis, I used discursive psychology to analyse the relationship between identity and the action of help in recorded calls to a victim support helpline. Victim is a contentious identity, with feminists and other critical scholars pointing to the politics involved when certain people are categorised as victims and others are overlooked. The findings provide evidence for the mutually constitutive relationship between identity and action... Read more

Aroha and manaakitanga - That's what it is about: Indigenous women, "love," and interpersonal violence
Denise Wilson, Alayne Mikahere-Hall, Debra Jackson, Karina Cootes and Juanita Sherwood
Journal of Interpersonal Violence , 2019, Advance online publication, 29 August 2019
Summary : Māori women (Aotearoa New Zealand's Indigenous women) experience a high burden of harm and homicide associated with intergenerational family violence, complicated by the ongoing effects of colonialism. Also, the historical, social, and cultural complexities, such as poverty and structural racism, challenge further Māori women seeking help. In this project, the authors sought to answer two questions: What are Māori women's sociocultural constructions of "love" within relationships with violent partners? What roles do traditional cultural values play in their relationships? ... Read more

'It's Not OK', but 'It' never happened: Parental alienation accusations undermine children's safety in the New Zealand Family Court
Deborah Mackenzie, Ruth Herbert and Neville Robertson
Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, 2020, Advance publication online, 7 January 2020

Summary: While the public campaign slogan in New Zealand when referring to family violence, is 'It's Not OK', many women in New Zealand report that the Family Court prefers the catchphrase 'It never happened'. When women and children escaping violence and abuse reach out to the New Zealand Family Court for protection believing the justice system will help them, they often enter an alternative reality where they are not believed and are subsequently made less safe....

The affective burden of separated mothers in PA(S) inflected custody law systems: A New Zealand case study
Vivienne Elizabeth
Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, 2020, Advance publication online, 7 January 2020

Summary: Custody law systems across the Anglo-West are increasingly characterised by the overt and covert use of parental alienation (syndrome) as an aid to the governance of post-separation mothers. Difficulties with care arrangements within PA(S) inflected custody law systems are often regarded as evidence of mothers' alienating behaviours, resulting in a range of remedial, coercive and punitive censures, including losing resident parent status. The author argues here that the synergistic interaction between custody law and PA(S) creates an affective burden for post-separation mothers... Read more

Tu Mau (Aotearoa New Zealand Social Work), 2018, 30(4): 13-18

Although there is no one single component that can be attributed to family violence, there are three contributing factors that are unique to the experiences of Pacific people in Aotearoa New Zealand...

A Treaty-based framework for mainstream social work education in Aotearoa New Zealand : educators talk about their practice
David McNabb
Aotearoa New Zealand Social Work, 2019, 31(4): 4-17

Summary: Globally, indigenous social work educators have pursued decolonisation and the development of decolonising practices as part of the indigenous peoples' rights movement and based on social work principles of self-determination and social justice. Māori have advanced decolonisation based on the original partnership that was envisaged in the Treaty of Waitangi signed between Māori and the British Crown in 1840. Aotearoa New Zealand social work education has a stated commitment to a Treaty-based partnership approach. This research engaged focus groups along with interviews of social work educators from nine of the 19 programmes across Aotearoa New Zealand... Read more
Why cultural safety rather than cultural competency is required to achieve health equity: A literature review and recommended definition
Elana Curtis, Rhys Jones, David Tipene-Leach, Curtis Walker, Belinda Loring, Sarah-Jane Paine and Papaarangi Reid
International Journal for Equity in Health, 2019, 18: 174. Online

Shelly Makleff, Florencia Barindelli, Rosa Icela Zavala, Jovita Garduño, Vanessa Ivon Silva Márquez, Cicely Marston
London: ALiGN: Advancing Learning and Innovation in Gender Norms, 2019

Summary: Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) may help prevent intimate partner violence (IPV) among young people by addressing the harmful gender norms that perpetuate inequitable relationships and violence. Despite its potential, few evaluations of CSE interventions have measured IPV or changes in related attitudes and social norms. To address this gap in the evidence base, this study examines how a CSE intervention in Mexico may help to address unequal gender norms... Read more
