Photographs and other items that celebrate the history of women in our region.

Suffrage 125 Whakatū Wāhine logoDid you know that 2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the signing of the Electoral Act that gave all New Zealand women the right to vote? 

Tasman Libraries are celebrating the occasion by bringing together photos and other materials that document the lives of local women from 1893 to 1993.

We’re really interested to see how local women’s experiences at home and at work, in education, sports, the arts and recreation have changed over time.

If you have original photos, letters or other unique items that show what life was like for women in the Tasman or Nelson area between 1893 and 1993 and you’re happy to let us copy and publish them on this website, please let us know. We’re starting the HerStory project on Monday 12 March. 

Terms and conditions apply.

For further information please phone the Richmond Library Information Services Team on (03) 543-8500, or contact Motueka Public Library, or Takaka Memorial Library.
