Whakatū Wāhine – Women Here and Now

2018 marks the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand; on 19 September 1893 the Electoral Act (1893) was passed, and women in New Zealand won the right to vote. Anniversaries of this event are special opportunities to reflect on women’s leadership in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We are proud to present Whakatū Wāhine – Women Here and Now as part of the Suffrage 125 anniversary commemorations.

Please join us for the the opening of Whakatū Wāhine – Women Here and Now.
