This report highlights the policy implications of research into the earthquake experiences of 150 Christchurch women interviewed for the Women’s Voices – Ngā Reo O Ngā Wahine Project. It focuses on housing and insurance issues; rebuilding and renewal; the role of communities; and the question of vulnerabilities. The report draws oral history interviews conducted by the Christchurch Branch of the National Council of Women of New Zealand between late 2011 and early 2014 as well as conversations in 2015 with eight key stakeholders in local and central government, district services, and community organisations. It was funded through a Christchurch City Council Community Project Grant. This report was presented to the Council in June 2015 and has been distributed to community organisations in Christchurch. 36 pages.
