11.05 Ideas: Marilyn Waring - the people, writers and philosophers who influenced her

Marilyn Waring originally planned to be a professional singer but was side-tracked into politics, becoming one of our youngest ever MPs. A passionate supporter of the anti-nuclear cause, her decision not to support the then National Government's pro-nuclear stance precipitated the 1984 snap election. And Marilyn Waring's post-politics career has, if anything, been even more eventful. Her 1988 book: 'Counting For Nothing: What Men Value and What Women are Worth' won praise from the likes of influential North American economist J K Galbraith, and helped spark a revolution in how we view national accounts. Ideas talks to Marilyn Waring, now a professor of public policy at AUT, about the individuals, writers and philosophers who have influenced her ideas. A line-up that includes: Patricia Grace, Bertrand Russell, Virginia Woolf, Emily Paki, and all of her English teachers.
