On 8 September 1893 New Zealand became the first country in the world to grant women the vote. (Though Pitcairn Island (protectorate)and Wyoming (territory) already had this "privilege") The Suffrage Petition of 1893 contained over 30,000 signatures of women from throughout New Zealand. This was just less than quarter of the adult female population at the time. The following are the South Taranaki women who signed;
