Today is International Women's Day and we remember Kate Sheppard's collaboration with the International Council of Women (ICW) while in England in 1894, where she was asked to found a national council in Aotearoa New Zealand.

In 1896 Kate formed the National Council of Women New Zealand (NCWNZ) at the inaugural women's convention in Christchurch. As the leader of the campaign for women's suffrage, Kate became President, an office she held for three years.

This was the first opportunity for the twenty five women delegates to call for the much needed social changes - universal old age pensions; prison reform; repeal of the Contagious Diseases Act; the removal of women’s civil disabilities; economic independence in divorce; raising the legal age for women's consent to s*xual in*******se; science based temperance taught in schools; establish homes for alcoholics; change liquor laws; free improved education; extend of the municipal franchise; allow women on boards and councils; demand equal wage for equal work.

By 1897, the NCW had lost momentum after Anna Stout resigned. Some felt the council was not adequately representing the working class. Many of the leading activists were tired and overwhelmed and there was a general malaise of apathy around social change in New Zealand. Many activists became ill or died and so after the 1902 convention in Napier, the council went into recess.

In 1909, Sheppard was elected an honorary vice-president, but these ties were tenuous and for a decade the women's movement’s voice declined.

During World War I, NCW secretary, Christina Henderson, Kate Sheppard and writer Jessie Mackay reactivated the council and at the convention in 1919 Auckland lawyer, Ellen Melville read Sheppard’s address providing a much needed inspiration for equality. She stated that neither the accident of birth nor the incidence of s*x should 'bar the right of each human being to self-development', and acknowledged the recent extension of the franchise in many countries.

Today, on her 199th birthday, we celebrate the remarkable contribution of Susan B. Anthony, a New Yorker we here in the greater Rochester region will never forget. Not only did Susan change the course of our state and nation's history but she also traveled abroad and helped to found the International Council of Women (ICW-CIF), which is still working today to bring greater human rights for women across the globe. Learn more about Susan's life and legacy at the nearby Susan B. Anthony Museum & House. #susanbinspiresme #NationalSusanBAnthonyDay

Congratulations YFW.

We zijn blij dat Young Feminist Weekend (YFW) online door gaat. Wel op een iets andere manier, die aansluit bij online werken en ontmoeten: namelijk wat meer verspreid en niet alles in 1 weekend.

Vandaag zijn de eerste online sessies met 30 enthousiaste deelnemers en het bevlogen YFW-team. We hopen op een later moment elkaar fysiek te kunnen ontmoeten. Speciale dank voor super bevlogen YFW-team die een heel gaaf programma in elkaar heeft gezet en dit ook weer online voor elkaar bokst!

Dit initiatief wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Wo=Men, ActionAid Gemeente Den Haag, VNVA, Fonds 1818, Soroptimist International Nederland , International Council of Women (ICW-CIF) , VVAO Netwerk Vrouwen FNV en Passage
