Women were labelled as house workers who stayed indoors all day cleaning the house and looking after the children while the men were out at work
It is time we gave woman the vote. HURRAH!
Women felt that gaining the right to vote would help bring equality. Kate Sheppard especially, and this is why she became one of the most famous suffragettes.
We got white because we support the cause!
I didn't want this so I got red
Women protested and protested, willing to go to extreme lengths for their cause, however, thankfully, it didn't get too violent in NZ. There were 5 petitions sent to the government house.
Eventually, after 5 very long and lengthy petitions and lots of protesting from women all over the country, the government came to their senses and agreed to give women the vote, marking NZ as the first country worldwide to give women the vote.
People who were in support of the governments decision were gifted white camelias, and those who opposed were gifted the same in red.
Slowly but surely, equality was gained and everyone was more or less equal.
