That Bloody Woman!
It's hard to believe coming up to an election that women in New Zealand once couldn't vote at all. These days 31 percent of our MPs are women and the person credited with kicking off that democratic process is Kate Sheppard in the early 1890s. That Bloody Woman, a musical about her efforts is about to go on a national tour beginning in Taranaki on 29 August. The musical is written by Luke Di Somma and Gregory Cooper and stars Esther Stephens as Kate, and Phoebe Hurst among many other cast members.
