New Zealand feminist Renée Gerlich sent WLRN her copy of this interview. She did it on request for Radio New Zealand – before being told it couldn’t broadcast, because it had “simply dropped out of the system”.
Listen carefully to how the interviewer asks Renée questions and how she responds to them to understand why it is likely this interview was censored. WLRN is committed to giving a platform to women who are silenced and marginalized by other media which is why it is an honor to post this interview.
