New Zealand was the first country in the world to grant women the right to vote. 2018 marks the 125th anniversary of this landmark legislation.
Thanks to the pioneering spirit of the suffrage movement, New Zealand women now have the right to choose their own path and have a place in every aspect of our society, at every level.
This concert, developed in association with Auckland Museum, will be an exciting mix of classical and contemporary music, inspiring multimedia imagery and the spoken word.
Join the APO and special guests to celebrate the extraordinary contribution and achievements of women – past, present and future.
