The 19th of September was the 125th anniversary of women gaining the vote in New Zealand. In honour of this significant commemoration Te Papa had a book launch and exhibition opening, which Ms. Perreau, Samuel Hudson, Hetal Patel and Zianna McLeod went to. The group were fortunate to catch Wellington on such a sunny day, and had the amazing opportunity to meet and listen to many empowering women with strong messages and food for thought (even getting some photos with MP Golriz Ghahraman and former Prime Minister Dame Jenny Shipley!) It was a great learning experience with lots to take away, and we look forward to seeing how we can contribute to the continuing work in realising gender equity in Aotearoa!
