The union representing professional footballers in New Zealand is seeking a single new contract for men and women with equal terms and condition, which, if successful, will be a world first. The claim, being negotiated by the Football Players' Association, seeks equal travel benefits for the Football Ferns who need to travel to New Zealand to play for their country. It also pushes for New Zealand Football to say how it plans to develop the women's game as per a FIFA directive, and agreement about how to use this initiative to benefit women footballers in this country. Kathryn talks to former Football Fern Sarah Gregorius, current captain Ali Riley, and the Human Rights Commissioner, David Rutherford.

Nelson Mandela's archivist, Verne Harris, has, with South African writer Mandla Langa, published Dare Not Linger - The Presidential Years. It's based on Mandela's unfinished draft and detailed notes that he made of a country in transition as he strove to make his vision for a liberated South Africa a reality.
