Every day is a celebration #suffrage125
Why is Anita @nitzm smiling? Because it's the 125th anniversary of the day New Zealand became the FIRST self-governing country allowing women 21yrs & over to vote. It's a monumental day, & one to be celebrated, but there's STILL much to be done in the realm of equal rights, domestically & globally, something all of us strive to remedy every day. .
While Anita is a woman, she's with McLeod's because she's capable, strong & passionate about beer. She is a brewer. Now, what Kate Sheppard, one of the key voices behind New Zealand’s suffrage movement AND a member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, would think about a woman making beer, we can never know. But that's the great thing about today... A woman can.
