From the Vault – Pioneering Women: Pioneer Women - Ettie Rout

  • Saturday 1 Sep

G The award-winning series Pioneer Women dramatised the lives of groundbreaking New Zealand women. This clip looks at controversial safe-sex campaigner Ettie Rout. In World War I she travelled to Egypt to care for Kiwi soldiers; there she found venereal disease was rife, and recommended that prophylactic kits be issued and that brothels be inspected for hygiene. She was charged, at the time, with having 'immoral' ideas, but in the more enlightened decades since, Rout is considered a "guardian angel of the ANZACs".
