Do you know what they achieved? Who is your hero?

NZ Women are very special and should be celebrated as individuals, wives, mothers and workers of the hightest calibre. Congratulations all NZ Women


Would anyone have voted for Rachel Smalley this week? The Newstalk ZB presenter seems to think Kiwi women are a 'bunch of lardos'. Classy.


Irene van Dyk is a great New Zealander - wonderful netball skills and awesome personality.
