It’s International Women’s day, and that has a Māori academic questioning the human rights position of wāhine Māori.

Professor Margaret Mutu from the University of Auckland's school of Māori studies says the latest United Nations’ periodic review of New Zealand includes not just eight recommendations to do something about racial discrimination against Māori but also calls to stop violence against Māori women and children.

"This country has an absolutely shocking reputation as having the worst domestic violence in the world, or the OECD. Violence agaisnt women, discrimination against Māori women, violence against Māori women is just totally unacceptable," she says.

Professor Mutu says it’s clear government doesn’t know how to improve the situation.
