Celebrating 125 years of Women’s Suffrage
Celebrate 125 years of women’s Suffrage with the special edition Broadsheet Tea Towel. In 1893 New Zealand became the first country in the world to give all women the right to vote. It established New Zealand as a leader in equality, a reputation we continue to be proud of.
This tea towel features a collection of slogans and quotes from throughout the history of women’s suffrage, both locally and internationally. Lulling the unwary into thinking it is reinforcing gender stereotypes, in reality it makes a bold but practical statement for gender equality.
“We must be ourselves at all risks” – Kate Sheppard
“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people” – Marie Shear
“Women’s rights are human rights” – Hillary Rodham Clinton
Screen printed on cotton, this tea towel is also 50 x 70 cm making it large enough to cope with the demands of any household.
Designed in collaboration with Museum Wellington and National Council of Women to celebrate Suffrage 125. A portion of proceeds from this product will help the National Council of Women with their vision to see a gender equal New Zealand.
