125 years ago, women of New Zealand used all their available resources - their time, energy, voice, feet, and embroidery skills, to win a major victory towards equality; the right under the law of our land to vote.
This was not a victory to end all battles on social, economic, racial, and gender inequality, but it was a momentous beginning.
Today the skills used by our inspiring predecessors are still alive and well, and provide inspiration for many to find their own way to express their views and add their voice to the cry for justice in our world.
or is it just an excuse to get together with friends and play with textiles...?
Both, really, and why not? :)
