5 days left until voting in the New Zealand general election ends and hopefully we see an end to the shitty reign of the National Party. Please vote! Your voice matters and its easier than ever to vote from overseas whanau - DM me if you need help. This is Kate Sheppard, badass suffragette and face of the NZ $10 note for those following from outside of my tiny Pacific Islands. Words via Radio New Zealand: Kate Sheppard, leader of the campaign for women's right to vote in New Zealand, argued that women going to the polls was simply "just". The "foundation of all political liberty", she explained, was "that those who obey the law should be able to have a voice in choosing those who make the law". Parliament "should be the reflection of the wishes of the people". A "government of the people, by the people, and for the people", she argued, "should mean all the people, and not one half".
