Whakatū wāhine

In light of women's suffrage week 125 years on,  Healthcentral.nz have brought our attention to ‘Women of Health: Rina Moore’.  According to the healthcentral.nz article, Rina Moore made history in 1949 as the first Maori Women to become a registered doctor.

“Her ability to recognise the essential humanity in each person, and to connect with it, particularly if the person was in trouble, was central to her work. She had great compassion for the sick and handicapped, and a special gift for helping those who were unable to help themselves.”
