Surrounded by the huge Pacific Ocean, New Zealand lies far away from other countries. The nearest country is Australia and that is 1600 km away. The country which is as larg as Germany has a population of only 3 ¼ million. It seems unbelievable that early Polynesian explorers, many centuries before the first Europeans came here, found this land at all. These early explorers were the early ancestors of the Maori.

The normal "school career" looks like that: Elementary School --> Middle School --> High School. You c ... mehr

When I wrote this essay I thought I should write it using the word "we" instead of women!

A lot of people shared this opinion less than 100 years ago. Middle class women had only to cook, keep house, sew and perhaps sing. There were only few "respectable" jobs that we could do, for example teaching and looking after other's people children. In the first and the second World War there was a great change for women.
