Monica Webb


I completed my MA in History (Distinction) at Massey University with my thesis on the life of Lady Anna Stout and I am currently preparing the manuscript for the full-length biography of Lady Stout. I have taught and tutored New Zealand history courses at Massey University and presented papers at numerous conferences.

My paper entitled A Colonial for the Cause presented at the 2018 suffrage centennial conference hosted by the Women’s History Network in Portsmouth, UK was included in the 2021publication The British Women’s Suffrage Campaign: National and International Perspectives (Routledge).

I have also worked as a researcher for the Chartwell Literary Group, USA on their forthcoming history of Christianity documentary project.

My areas of research interest include Victorian and Edwardian periods, New Zealand, women’s history, transnational relations among women of the British World, migration and Pacific history.
