Soroptimists Celebrate Women's Suffrage

Soroptimist International North Shore held a High Tea at Murrays Bay's Outram Hall on Sunday, 9th September to celebrate 125 years of women's suffrage in New Zealand. Guests were treated to bubbles followed by a selection of afternoon tea treats prepared by society members who were dressed as suffragettes and included New Zealand's first Indian medical doctor. The CEO for Ministry for Women Renee Graham spoke about achieving the Ministry's vision of better outcomes for women. She was followed by speaker Erica O'Flaherty of Auckland Libraries Research Centre. 'Mom-oirs', members' memories about their mothers' lives, were displayed and a silent auction was held to help fundraise to improve the lives of women and girls. New members are welcome to join this global organisation.
