Celebrate 125 years of women's suffrage by helping to increase the visibility of New Zealand women who have made a contribution to the arts and community life in Aotearoa.
Dedicated to exploring women’s suffrage and the women’s rights movement, discover the stories of women who have and are making a difference for all people in Aotearoa New Zealand.
#directedbywomen #aotearoa is a series of pop-up events around the country, to celebrate and learn from women who direct films, television, web series and commercials, in Aotearoa and elsewhere.
Come and celebrate the launch of the Big Girls puppet exhibition. Also create a lantern to ‘shine a light on your rights’ which will become part of the exhibition and used in the lantern parade.
Come along for an illuminated parade of lanterns and Big Girls puppets - a radiant celebration of women's rights along Wellington's waterfront. Musical instruments and costumes welcome!
The Suffrage 125 celebration is being led by the Ministry for Women, New Zealand Minitatanga mō ngā Wahine in partnership with Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
