Summer Learning Journey Week 2 : The Right To Vote

Activity 2 : The Right To Vote .
At the turn of the century , New Zealand elected its first ever government . Richard John Seddon served as the leader of the liberal party from 1893 - 1906 . Prior to that , only men were legally aloud to vote . This was changed in the late 1800's when a woman named Kate Sheppard lead a suffragist movement movement in New Zealand calling for a change of law . Eventually , her hard work ended  up making it happen . And women were aloud to vote . Sweet . However, Countries like Saudi arabia who until recently said that women were not aloud to vote until 2015 . 

Why ,Exactly? I think that Saudi Arabia thought that just because New Zealand did it , They didn't have to do it . But they soon realised their wrong and let their woman vote . Both Man and Woman are one . I don't understand why women weren't allowed to vote . Were all equal people . Just let women vote .

  1. Hi LJ,
    I really liked this post! The picture you used to support your text made your post engaging and eye catching, besides it really made me smile. :)
    I totally agree with you, we are all equal despite gender, religion and races. We all deserve to have equal rights in this world. It's nice to see that you express you point of view strongly here, well done!
    Just yesterday I saw in the news that in Iceland they just approved the law for equality pay between man and woman. Which means that men are not allowed by law to get pay more than woman. I find unbelievable that we are in 2018 and still just now starting to get equal pay, so as you can see we still have a long way to go towards equality between genders.

    Kia kaha,
