- Suffrage Anniversaries
The white ribbon: for God and home and humanity. Wellington: Printed for the W.C.T.U. of N.Z. by Wright and Carman, June 18, 1943.
The white ribbon was the official magazine of the New Zealand Women’s Christian Temperance Union from 1895 to 1965.
This 1943 issue marks the fiftieth anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. It warns of the need “to impress upon our children’s minds how the women of the past wrestled and fought, suffered and wept, prayed and believed, agonised and won for them the freedom they enjoy today.”
Broadsheet. Auckland: Auckland Women's Liberation, Summer 1993.
Broadsheet was a New Zealand feminist periodical published in Auckland between 1972 and 1997.
This Summer 1993 issue marks the centenary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. Quoting Marilyn Waring, Broadsheet laments the “tea and cucumber sandwiches” approach to suffrage celebrations. “Women have made the year too comfortable politically. It was not comfortable to be a feminist in 1893, it was hard work and extremely uncomfortable. We haven’t honoured the suffragettes until we are uncomfortable politically and it hasn’t been politically uncomfortable this year.”
