On the 19th September 1893 New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world to grant all women, over the age of 21, the right to vote in parliamentary elections. This success came at the end of an enormous struggle by suffragists in New Zealand, led by Kate Sheppard.
The Women of St Matthews Society of Bellringers and friends were successful in ringing a Quarter peal to mark 125 years of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand.
This performance included a first quarter-peal ringer on bell 6
