#WhyIVote Action

Women’s March Aotearoa New Zealand wants to inspire more women to vote with our #WhyIVote action.

The women of Aotearoa New Zealand have had the right to vote for almost 125 years, but during the 2014 general election only two-thirds of those aged 18 to 29 voted. We want to change that. Women deserve and need to make their voices heard.

So this election let’s make all our votes count.

In the four weeks before the election we will also be featuring policies and information on our cornerstone issues: Health, Economics, Representation and Safety. Make sure you check out our articles on these areas. And in the meantime:
