Auckland Women's Health Collective pamphlet

Women's groups were the most prominent critics of the medical profession and hospital practice and processes. They were active from the 1970s, a time characterised by a mood of anti-authoritarianism. This pamphlet published by the Auckland Women's Health Collective details the advocacy, self-help and support services offered by the group.
