On September 19, 2013 we celebrate 120 Years of Votes for New Zealand women. In 1893, the suffragists presented white camellias to the members of the House of Representatives who supported votes for women.
The white camellia (or Camellia japonica alba plena) became a symbol of New Zealand women’s struggle for the right to vote.
