Women and the vote

Page 6 – Women's suffrage petition

This database is a digitised version of the main suffrage petition submitted to Parliament in 1893. The name and address fields represent what appeared on the original sheets. The Suburb/Town and City/Region fields have been added to provide consistent information about the signatories’ location. The 'more' link goes to a page where extra information can be added. Members of the public are encouraged to submit further information via community contributions or you can email us at webqueries@mch.govt.nz. Please refer to this guide for writing a suffrage petition biography from Archives New Zealand. Updates: each sheet number reference now links to a digital copy of the original sheet. Also, each entry with additional biographical information now displays as bold text.
