This is the story of 'Deeds not Words'. In 1893 New Zealand became the first country in the world to allow women to vote. Kate Sheppard and Meri Mangakahia, were both New Zealand suffragettes. The camellia flower also appears on the 10 dollar note next to Kate Shepherd and were given to members of parliament who supported the suffrage bill (the flower is however white on the ten dollar note). Deeds not words was a famous saying of the UK suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst.
