This blog focuses on and displays our research on women who remained on the home front in the South Pacific during the First World War. We focus on how these women adapted to the impact of War and the absence of men.

We focus on the characters and stories of Maori, Samoan, European New Zealand and Australian women.

Our story is written in the first person in order to create a personal connection between our audience and the characters in the stories. Each story has been drawn from research, inspired by a photo and fictionalised into a first person account.

We invite you explore the stories by clicking on the images below or select from the list of posts on the left.
