New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the vote, in 1893 – something which we are quite proud of. And in the Auckland CBD we have a great big mural celebrating the centenary of Women’s Suffrage, which just happens to be next to and up an awesome set of steps on Lower Khartoum Place. And there’s a space for me!
I have never missed an opportunity to vote. For every general and every local election, I’ve gotten out there and had my say.
Today I vote for the right to public toplessness (which is actually legal in New Zealand, but still causes a fuss)!
Thank you, women of New Zealand who came before me, for giving me all the opportunities I have today. You’re all awesome
Thanks to Hylas for photographing and Kiana for assisting!
