Women's Suffrage Brunch


Have a tasty brunch and listen to three doctors and a dame discuss the legacy of New Zealand's suffragists and the progress of women's equality over the last 125 years. 

Panelists include: 

  • Dr Bronwyn Labrum (Head of Pacific and New Zealand Cultures at Te Papa, and editor of the recently-released book "Women Now: The Legacy of Female Suffrage" )
  • Hon Dr Megan Woods MP (another historian),
  • Dame Hon Annette King (Needs no introduction),
  • Dr Charlotte MacDonald (another historian & Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand Te Aparangi)

Dr Bronwyn Labrum will be talking about Te Papa's new book "Women Now. The Legacy of Female Suffrage".  Chapters, written by an array of interesting historians, feature objects of significance to the theme. The panel will then examine other significant milestones towards women’s equality and consider the most pressing issues around women’s equality today.

This event is not just for women but for anyone interested in history and the growth of New Zealand as an independent nation.

These women are all engaging speakers so expect fun, learning new things, enjoying good stories, and a lot of laughter - as well as a good meal!

Tickets are $60 and can be purchased here (click link).
