When Helen Kelly died in October 2016, with her partner by her side and a bunch of peonies by her bed, New Zealand lost an extraordinary leader. Kelly was the first female head of the country's trade union movement, and much more: a visionary who believed that all workers, whether in a union or not, deserved fair treatment; a fighter from a deeply communist family who never gave up the struggle; a strategist and orator who invoked strong loyalty; a woman who stirred fierce emotions. Her battles with famous people were the stuff of headlines. She took on Peter Jackson, the country's icon. She was accused in parliament of doing 'irreparable damage' to the union movement, and by employers of exploiting bereaved families of dead workers. While many saw her as a hero, to others she was 'that woman', a bloody pain in the neck. In this brilliant book, award-winning journalist Rebecca Macfie takes you not only into Kelly's life but into a defining period in New Zealand's history, when old values were replaced by the individualism of neo-liberalism, and the wellbeing and livelihood of workers faced unremitting stress. Through it all, Helen Kelly stood as an electrifying figure.
