Akl Women's Suffrage Breakfast - chance to go with other leftie ladies

My dear gravid friend Arna is putting together a group of leftie laydeez to go to Women's Health Action's Suffrage Breakfast this year. I'd be there except if things go well tomorrow I will be out of Auckland that day. If you are keen please contact Arna Metcalfe on 027 6728148 or arnametcalfe at xnet dot co dot nz, tickets are $33 each, including breakfast.

Here's a little bit about the event itself:
The Women’s Suffrage Breakfast is a wonderful opportunity to meet with friends and celebrate Suffrage Day.

Given that it is Women’s Health Action’s 25th Anniversary this year, we have invited Sandra Coney, one of the founders of Women’s Health Action Trust to speak. She will be reflecting on 25 years of Women’s Health activism in New Zealand. This will be an informative and entertaining event.”

The suffrage breakfast will be held in the Newmarket Room at the Ellerslie Event Centre, Ellerslie Racecourse, Auckland from 7am - 9am on the 25th September 2009.
Sadly The Hand Mirror will not be able to organise it's Suffrage Eve Debate this year, due to being just too damn busy. We'll be looking to get it going again next year though.

If you know of any other Suffrage Day events that we could put up here then do feel free to share!
