Come help us celebrate New Zealand's amazing history of women making their mark!

Partnering with the Ministry for Women and the National Library, Government Women's Network (GWN) is proud to be opening a banner exhibition at the National Library which celebrates three key women from New Zealand's suffrage history and see stories of how our world leading suffrage movement put Kiwi women on the global stage.

The banners will be unveiled in the foyer and we'll hear from GWN's Chair, Ruth Shinoda and Dr Kathie Irwin, Chief Advisor Māori, Office of the Children's Commissioner. The speeches will be followed by light refreshments. Numbers are strictly limited so get in quick!
