Bio Note: A first Women's Centre was at 125 Ponsonby Rd. Proposals for a larger centre were put forward at the Women's Congress at Piha in 1978. After the premises of the Council for the Single Mother and Her Child were arsoned, CSMC took the lease on 63 Ponsonby Rd, with other groups joining as tenants. The Women's Health Collective was started in 1979. The Women's Library began in the early 1980's to support the telephone answering service Womanline. The library closed in 1989. In the 1990s the collectives operating out of the Women's Centre found separate premises, leaving the Women's Health Collective as lease holder. In 1994 the Auckland Women's Health Collective collapsed, and a new collective was established to take over the running of the Auckland Women's Centre.

AUCKLAND WOMEN’S CENTRE NZMS 999 Auckland Women's Health Collective Womanline and the Women's Library Feminist Papers, Periodicals, Publications and Posters Glenda Northey’s papers February 7 2013 AUCKLAND WOMEN'S CENTRE Archiving Project 1995 The Auckland Women's Centre archival collections cover the period from the mid 1970s to 1993. They comprise general material about the Women's Health Centre at 63 Ponsonby Rd, about one its main organisations, the Auckland Women's Health Collective, and about the Women's Library established in the 1980s. There is also information about women's groups which used the Centre and groups in Auckland, around the country and overseas with which the Auckland Women' Health Collective had contact. In the 1980s, the Auckland Women's Health Centre was part of an international women's health movement which arose from the 'second wave'; wave of feminism in the 1970s. By 1994 the Auckland Women's Health Collective had collapsed. A new collective was institigated which took over the running of the house as a general Women's Centre. In mid 1995, with a grant from the Heritage Committee of Lotto and a Taskforce Green subsidy from the Dept of Labour, Linda Hill was employed to archive the material found in the house when the collective took over. As stipulated by the grant, training was provided - by Ellen Ellis, archivist and Andrea Wise, conservationist. The material has been organised in three collections: Auckland Women's Centre Auckland Women's Health Collective 15 boxes This gives some detail about the Centre but comprises principally material on the Auckland Women's Health Collective - its administration files, its activities, its information service on health, feminist health politics and other feminism issues, and its contacts with other groups. Auckland Women's Centre Womanline and the Women's Library 2 boxes Auckland Women's Centre Feminist Papers, Periodicals, Publications and Posters 20 boxes Papers, fliers, periodicals and publications of about women's groups and feminist issues and activities found in the Centre at May 1995. There is also some feminist material contributed to the Auckland Women's Centre during the project. Full accession lists for these donations are held at the Auckland Women's Centre. One box comprises papers donated by Rosemary Ronald, formerly on the collective of both Broadsheet and Bitches Witches & Dykes . She also donated magazines, and some of these, as well as some found in the Centre, are marked 'bwd'. Organisation of the material is by type of item or publication, New Zealand or overseas Lesbian material from the Auckland Women's Centre, together with other accessions has formed the nucleus of an Auckland lesbian archives. The Auckland Women's Centre has facilitated the formation of a lesbian community archiving group, the Lesbe-Friends of the Archives Trust, which is collecting and conserving further material. Its object is to enter into a formal arrangement with the Auckland Public Library to hold and allow access to the archives under the terms of an agreement with the owning group. Glenda Northey donated a box of Auckland Womens’ Centre papers to the Library in 1997. These have been added to earlier material and are described at the end of this inventory. About the Auckland Women's Centre A first Woman's Centre was at 125 Ponsonby Road. At the Women's Congress at Piha in 1978 a paper was presented about a plan for a large Women's Centre (see photocopy in WHC No.1; also Rosemary Ronald papers in the Feminist Collection). At that time SOS (Save Our Sisters, a group which supported women going to Sydney to get abortions) (key person Megan Grant) and the council for the Single Mother and Her Child (Joss Shawyer, Julie Maddison) were in premises at New St, which were arsoned. CSMC took the lease on 63 Ponsonby Rd, with other groups joining as tenants. The Women's Health Collective was started, with Chris Gillies fund as the first coordinator. Rape Crisis began at this time (Susan St Claire) and joined the Centre. Two social work students from Massey did placements staffing the houseand applying for funds, getting a small grant from the Mental Health Foundation. At the end of 1979 women at the Centre began the Auckland's first lesbian support group. In the early 1980s, Womanline, a telephone answering service, was one of the main groups in the Centre and established the Womanline Library, soon called The Woman's Library. Administrative difficulties and book losses led to the library closing in 1989. By 1990 there were six collectives operating out of the Centre: Womanline, the Auckland Women's Health Collective, Rape Crisis, the Council for the Single Mother and Her Child, Maori and Pacific Island Health Collective and New Mothers Support Group. The Centre as a whole was administered through house meetings, with the Council for the Single Mother & Her Child, and finally the Women's Health Collective, as the lease holder, charging others rent. At this time there was dissatisfaction with the premises, particularly in terms of space but a bid to get larger premises from the Auckland City Council did not succeed. There were problems among coordinators relating to disorganisation and dishonesty. One by one Womanline, Rape Crisis and the Council for the Single Mother and her Child, found their own premises, taking their files with them. When the present Collective was established, most remaining documentation in the Centre related to the Auckland Women's Health Collective. AUCKLAND WOMEN'S CENTRE AUCKLAND WOMEN'S HEALTH COLLECTIVE 1979 - 1993 Of material from the Auckland Women's Health Centre and from groups using the Centre. Since the Auckland Women's Health Collective was the main group in the house in the early 1990s, boundaries between between their material, material about the running of the Centre, and general material found in the house are not always clearcut. The collection focuses on the Auckland Women's Health Collective as a feminist health group providing an information service to Auckland women. The material sshows the links this group had links with other women's health groups in NZ and with women's health and other feminist organisations elsewhere, as well as with other community groups and involvement in a range of radical issues. .

It established the Womanline Library, soon called The Women’s Library. Administrative difficulties and book losses led to the library closing in 1989. Around 1990 Womanline moved to the Workers Education Association house in Williamson Avenue. This collection archives some early material left at the Ponsonby Rd Centre, primarily related to the library itself. Some further material about the library and its accounts came from Chrisie Duggan of the Council for the Single Mother and Her Child. When the news Collective was formed, around one third of the books of Woman’s Library were still stored in the house. In 1995 it is being recatalogued and reopened by the present Auckland Women’s Centre collective. There are also Broadsheet library books passed to the Centre when Broadsheet moved from its Dominion road offices, and a number of books marked Megal Grant (SOS) which must have passed to the library on her death. 2 Boxes WL 1 Womanline and The Women’s Library - administration files WL 2 Womanline Information files AUCKLAND WOMEN’S CENTRE WOMANLINE AND THE WOMEN’S LIBRARY Box No. Computer file: WL 1 library Womanline/The Women’s Library 1.
