Marilyn Waring talks to MP Chlöe Swarbrick about her 2019 autobiography recounting her extraordinary years in parliament – the youngest MP to ever enter Parliament (1975); the only female National MP after the 1978 election; crossing the floor on nuclear-free legislation, thus provoking PM Rob Muldoon, who had a one-seat majority, to call the ill-fated 1984 snap election.
Marilyn went on to crusade internationally for the economic empowerment of women, including working for the UN. In 2014 she was NZIER Economist of the Year and in 2018 won the NZ Visionary Leader Award (Deloitte Top 200 Awards). She is a Professor of Public Policy at AUT.
