Women cel­e­brate 100 years

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By JOAN STAN­LEY

The Mata­mata Branch of the Na­tional Coun­cil of Women in­vites Mata­mata women to join them in cel­e­brat­ing the 100th year of the In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day.

Mem­bers are hold­ing a tea and cof­fee morn­ing at Firth Tower Mu­seum to hon­our the achieve­ments of women world­wide.

New Zealand was the first coun­try in the world to grant women the right to vote in 1893, which is won­der­ful event to re­mem­ber.

New Zealand women have much to be thank­ful for.

The first In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day was held 100 years ago on March 13, 1911.

A few years later the date was changed to March 8, the day on which date it has been cel­e­brated ever since.

But there are still prob­lems for many women all over the world which must be solved.

Come out to the Tower on Tues­day, March 8 and bring your friends.

You are all wel­come as this is a global cel­e­bra­tion with events be­ing held all over the world on this date. We need to make sure that the young girls of to­day, all over the world, have the op­por­tu­nity to have a happy and re­ward­ing fu­ture.
