On 19 September 1893, New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world in which women had the right to vote in parliamentary elections.

Also in 1893, Elizabeth Yates became Mayor of Onehunga, the first time such a post had been held by a woman anywhere in the British Empire.

On Saturday the 15th of September groups formed a march that celebrated the 125th anniversary of Suffrage (women get the right to vote).

It was from the top of King St, Pukekohe to the town square and finished at the Pukekohe War Memorial Town Hall.
