$40.00(NZD)  inc GST
In 1893 New Zealand became the first country in the world to give women the vote, an achievement of which we are justly proud, but it wasn't easily achieved. Respected historian Megan Hutching records and explains this momentous event, including profiles of the women who brought about the government's change of heart. Their stories are an important part of our history and their courage, loyalty and fierce belief in democracy was remarkable. The story of how New Zealand women won the vote makes fascinating reading.
