Racism, Sexism, NZPol 

Threats against Māori women not taken seriously, says Wellington city councillor.

Tamatha Paul points to the racism endured by Labour Party minister Nanaia Mahuta and Māori Party co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer.

“The institutions just tell them to go to the police, as if that has ever been a safe or reliable pathway for us,” she says. “I don’t feel like threats against Māori women are ever taken seriously until it’s too late.”
