International Women's Day (IWD) is March 8 and the 2017 campaign theme is Be Bold For Change.
I celebrate with the women who come to my English Class.
am very proud of Kate Sheppard. Her image appears on our ten dollar
note. She is mainly responsible for New Zealand to be the first country
to give women the vote in modern times.
Wilson Sheppard (10 March 1847 – 13 July 1934) was the most prominent
member of New Zealand's women's suffrage movement, and is the country's
most famous suffragette. Because New Zealand was the first country to
introduce universal suffrage, Sheppard's work had a considerable impact
on women's suffrage movements in other countries. During one of the
protest movement, she led a whole group of ladies to lie down on the
road and the police couldn't do anything.
