More Suffrage Day events

Big thanks to Anne Else for sending these Wellington events through and my apologies for not getting them up sooner:

The Equitea - Parliament Steps, 10.30, Friday 18 September - a group of women are gathering in period suffrage costume to have morning tea and present a cake with 12% missing to, they hope, Pansy Wong, Minister of Women's Affairs.

Judith Dennis of the Women's Studies Association has organised a Women's Suffrage Day Lunchtime Run on Friday 18 September. Details of the run are as
- 12:05: Start from Ministy of Health office, Konica Minolta House, 79 Taranaki Street and head down to the waterfront
- 12:20 Join us at the MoH office at 1 The Terrace - then across in front of Parliament to Molesworth
- 12:30 Join us at the MoH office at 133 Molesworth Street.
Times are approximate - suggest you be at the meeting point a few minutes early just in case....
The run will then head down to the Railway Station via Pipitea Street, across to the waterfront again, heading south to Te Papa, and back past Taranaki Street, then repeating the circuit dropping people off as we go.
Purple clothing preferable. Friends, sisters, mothers and daughters working along the route are also welcome to join. For more information contact:
