Confirmed speakers so far are:
We are approaching various women's organisations for a written question from each which they can supply ahead of time. Feel free to suggest organisations for us to approach in comments.
Please note this is NOT an Auckland Central debate. We have specifically asked parties not to send their Auckland Central candidates as we want this to focus on women's issues in Aotearoa New Zealand. Would love to see any Auckland Central candidates in the crowd, of course!
The inaugural Suffrage Eve debate was in 2008. While intentions to do this annually have been frustrated by Real Life, maybe we'll get around to making that work in 2012...
