Come and celebrate the passing of the 1893 Electoral Act when women in New Zealand gained the right to vote! We will have suffrage tours of He Tohu to remember those who helped pave the way forward for us.
The ‘Monster’ Petition
It’s been 127 years since the passing of the 1893 Electoral Act, thanks to the many women (and men) who signed their name to the 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition.
