Is New Zealand’s first memorial to the women’s suffrage campaign, and particularly honors the life of one of the country’s leading campaigners for women’s suffrage, Kate Sheppard. The monument was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the women’s vote in New Zealand in 1993 and designed by artist Margriet Windhausen.
Kate Sheppard National Memorial is a stone aggregate wall, with a life size bronze relief sculpture of Sheppard and five other women’s suffrage leaders. Panels on either side of the sculpture depict scenes of everyday women’s lives at the end of the nineteenth century, and carry text describing the struggle for women’s suffrage. The whole structure is approximately 5 meters wide and 2 meters tall.
