Timeline 1 : New Zealand . . Go to Teacher's Comment

1835       A Declaration of Independence of New Zealand is drawn up by Busby without authorisation from his superiors. This asserts the independence of New Zealand, with all sovereign power and authority resting with the hereditary chiefs and tribes. The declaration is eventually signed by 52 Maori chiefs.
1839       The British government appoints William Hobson as consul to New Zealand, with instructions to obtain sovereignty with the consent of a 'sufficient number' of chiefs.
1841       New Zealand becomes a separate Crown Colony, ending its connection with New South Wales. Communicating with London takes many months.
1852       The New Zealand Constitution Act (UK) establishes a system of representative government for New Zealand. Six (eventually ten) provinces are created, with elected superintendents and councils. At the national level, a General Assembly is established, consisting of a Legislative Council appointed by the Crown and a House of Representatives elected every five years by males over the age of 21 who own, lease or rent property of a certain value.
1853       The House of Representatives' first 37 Members of Parliament are elected
1854       The First Parliament meets in Auckland.
1856       ¡®Responsible¡¯ government begins in New Zealand, with an executive supported by a majority in House of Representatives. The governor retains responsibility for defence and Maori affairs.
1869       Mary Ann Muller ('Femina') wrote 'An appeal to the men of New Zealand', advocating votes for women
1871       Mary Colclough ('Polly Plum') gave her first public lecture on the rights of women, including their right to vote. (Letters to and from 'Polly Plum' that appeared in the New Zealand Herald in 1871)
1874       J.C. Andrew in the House of Representatives urged that women be enfranchised.
1878       Robert Stout unsuccessfully proposed in his Electoral Bill that women ratepayers be eligible to vote for and be elected as members of the House of Representatives.
1879       The government's Qualification of Electors Bill was amended to give women property owners the vote, but parliamentarians who wanted all women without exception to be enfranchised joined with those who opposed the reform to defeat the amendment.
1879       Universal suffrage is introduced for all males over 21.
1880       The Women's Franchise Bill, introduced by James Wallis, lapsed after the first reading.
1881       Another Women's Franchise Bill was introduced by Wallis but was withdrawn before the second reading.
1885       The New Zealand Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was established following the visit of American temperance campaigner Mary Leavitt; by February 1886 there were 15 branches.
1886       At its first annual convention in Wellington, presided over by Anne Ward, the WCTU resolved to work for women's suffrage.
1887       Two petitions requesting franchise were signed by some 350 women and presented to the House of Representatives.
1887       A Women's Suffrage Bill to enfranchise women and give them the right to sit in Parliament was introduced by Julius Vogel but was withdrawn at the committee stage.
1888       Two petitions asking for the enfranchisement of women were signed by around 800 women and presented to the Legislative Council.
1889       The Tailoresses' Union of New Zealand was established in Dunedin; many of its members, including the vice-president, Harriet Morison, were active in the suffrage campaign.
1890       A Women's Franchise Bill introduced by Sir John Hall late in the parliamentary session lapsed, in spite of majority support, because there was no time to consider it. Hall then moved an amendment to the Electoral Bill to provide for women's franchise, but this was defeated.
1891       Eight petitions asking for franchise were signed by over 9000 women and together were presented to the House of Representatives.
1891       A Female Suffrage Bill introduced by Hall received majority support in the House of Representatives but was narrowly defeated in the Legislative Council.
1892       The Women's Franchise League was established first in Dunedin and later elsewhere.
1892       The Electoral Bill, introduced by John Ballance, provided for the enfranchisement of all women, but controversy over an impractical postal vote amendment caused the abandonment of the bill.
1893       Thirteen petitions requesting that franchise be conferred on women were signed by nearly 32,000 women, compiled and presented to the House of Representatives.
1893       Meri Te Tai Mangakahia addressed the Maori parliament to ask that Maori women be allowed to vote for and become members of that body, but the matter lapsed.
1893       A Women's Suffrage Bill was introduced by Hall in June but withdrawn in October because it was superseded by the Electoral Act.
1893       An Electoral Bill containing provisions on women's suffrage was introduced by Richard Seddon in June. During debate, there was majority support for the enfranchisement of Maori as well as Pakeha women. The bill was passed by the Legislative Council on 8 September (after last-minute changes of allegiance) and consented to by the governor on 19 September. The Electoral Act 1893 gave all women in New Zealand the right to vote.
1893       Universal suffrage is introduced for women over 21 (including Maori). New Zealand becomes the first self-governing country to grant the right to vote to all adult women.
