Celebrating Suffrage 125 in Christchurch

We are very grateful and excited to be the recipient of ticket proceeds for a special event on 13 September, marking the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage with Prime Minister Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, and Christchurch Mayor Hon Lianne Dalziel.

Kate Sheppard served on our board in the late 1880s and we’re so proud to be continuing her legacy right here in Christchurch, 130 years later. Like Kate, we are committed to empowering and supporting women and we currently do this by providing emergency and transitional housing, and wrap around support services to the women and children who stay with us.

This special event will be held at the Isaac Theatre Royal. For more information see the ChristchurchNZ website, and look out for updates on social media.
