  • Kate Sheppard
  • This petition will give the women of New Zealand the vote! 
  • Wow! Where do I sign?
  • The first petition got to 9,000 signatures.
  • House of Representatives
  • No way!
  • The women of New Zealand protested and gathered 20,000 signatures, but once again got turned down by the House of Representatives.
  • In 1893 a petition was presented to the House of Representatives with nearly 32,000 signatures. On 19 September 1893 the governor general signed off on the Electoral Bill that would give women, Maori and Pakeha, the right to vote in NZ.
