Short films featuring New Zealand’s inspiring women launched today to mark International Women’s Day

A series of short films featuring some of New Zealand’s most inspiring wahine toa is being launched today to mark international Women’s Day. 

Vea Mafile’o Director of Malosi productions and Arizona Leger Director, Counties Manukau Rugby Union are two of seven guest personalities that speak candidly about how their lives and careers connected to Auckland and to this year’s International Women’s Day theme of Embracing Equity. 

The project is part of Auckland’s leverage and legacy programme for the FIFA Womens’ World Cup 2023 and will be delivered as a series of bite-size films in the lead-up to the tournament, which kicks off at Eden Park in July. 

The series explores what hosting the FIFA Womens’ World Cup 2023 in Auckland means for these wahine toa, their industries and their communities-whether that’s the opportunity to enhance the profile of Auckland as a destination through the global reach of the tournament (estimated to be over 1.12 billion) or the platform it creates to ensure more equity for women and girls in sport.
