Women celebrate 100 years
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.
