From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 7 April 2021

Policymakers, doctors and educators say the health system in Aotearoa is failing women, wahine Māori and trans and non-binary people. 

Today the Gender Justice Collective will meet on parliament's steps calling for an urgent select committee process and a $6 million injection into an overhaul of women's health services. 

They say New Zealand is lagging behind countries like Australia, Canada and the UK.

Ange Meyer is a Spokesperson for the Gender Justice Collective.

She spoke to Susie Ferguson.
