Kate Sheppard National Memorial

6 March 2013

The Kate Sheppard National Memorial is a large cast bronze depiction of women in New Zealand, flagged by two bronze plaques inscribed with the history of the Women’s Suffrage movement in New Zealand, mounted on a upright ornate concrete plinth. It was sculpted in 1993 by Margriet Windhausen. It was unveiled on 19 September 1993 and commemorates the centenary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand - the first self-governing country in the world to grant women the right to vote. (https://ccc.govt.nz/culture-and-community/heritage/heritage-in-the-city/memorials) The memorial features 6 suffragettes: Meri Te Tai Mangakahia, Helen Nicol, Kate Sheppard, Ada Wells, Harriet Morison and Amey Daldy.
