It is almost 100 years since women were given the right to vote in New Zealand and, unintentionally, the right to sit in parliament in South Australia. This book covers all this period to the present. It highlights the accounts of women - some well-known but many unknown - without whose bravery, determination and belief in the rights of women, it would still not be possible for women to own property, have custody of their children, be paid the same as men for doing the same work, be allowed to stay in the work-force after marriage, or be entitled to say "no" to sex once married. This book aims to show how recent the struggle for women's rights has been, how hard it was to achieve even small gains - like the right to vote, make a will or get a divorce - and to remind readers that, with only 7% of MPs in English-speaking parliaments being women, there is still a lot more to achieve.
