It's been just over 20 years since New Zealand had its first female Prime Minister, Jenny Shipley. Since then there have been two more, which is a feat rarely achieved anywhere else in the world. Dame Jenny Shipley talks to Megan about the challenges facing women as they are still under represented in board rooms and leading companies. Dame Jenny is helping to turn that around as co-chair of Champions of Change.  She also talks about the project she is leading for 2019 looking back 250 years when  Pacfic/Maori and Europeans met for the first time on and off the coast of New Zealand.
