Domestic Purposes Benefit demonstration

Demonstration relating to the Domestic Purposes Benefit outside the Department of Social Welfare, Wellington in 1977.

The DPB was introduced in 1973 with the aim of helping women with a dependent child or children who had lost the support of a husband, or were inadequately supported by him. While men could claim the DPB the vast majority of those claiming the benefit were women.
