123 years ago, women achieved the right to vote in New Zealand. We were world leaders then, but how far have we come since that day?

Enjoy a coffee and a light breakfast, and listen to short inspirational talks by a curator, a former MP and mayor, and the Wellington Girls’ College Feminist Club. There’s also time to mingle and share ideas.

Get the chance to take a close-up look at our new display of Parker’s Women’s Social and Political Union Medal for Valour.

‘Kate Sheppard’ is popping in too, to assist with your electoral details!

Claire Regnault, Te Papa history curator, brings to life the battle of suffragette Frances Parker - discover the price she paid and the rewards she won.

Fran Wilde, former MP and Mayor of Wellington, discusses key issues for women that she championed in Parliament, ranging from pay equity to domestic violence legislation.

Wellington Girls’ College Feminist Club will transport you to your youth, and your future, and learn about current and future challenges.
