The story of Dame Whina Cooper, the beloved Maaori matriarch who worked tirelessly to improve the rights of her people, especially women.
Flawed yet resilient, Whina tells the story of a woman formed by tradition, compelled by innovation, and guided by an instinct for equality and justice whose legacy as the Te Whaea o te Motu (Mother of the Nation) was an inspiration to an entire country.
