WHO: Kate Sheppard was the prominent leader of the women’s Suffrage movement in New Zealand. Because of her, in 1893, NZ became the first self-governing nation in the world to grant the vote to all women 21+ with many countries following in their lead. Kate Sheppard worked in NZ and abroad for women’s rights – from contraception to freedom from the corset. She became the editor of The White Ribbon which was the first newspaper in New Zealand to be owned, managed and published solely by women – Girl Boss much!?
Needless to say, the work in which Kate fought for was pivotal in how women were portrayed in society, their roles in a workplace and a huge breakthrough in what was such a male dominated world. Kate was one of many incredible women who paved the way for what we continue to fight for in today’s society across industries, gender equality.
WHY WE LOVE HER:Kate was determined and unwavering in her opinions and actions, fighting for what she knew to be right, despite the backlash and challenging road to get there.
