1933: 'A red-letter day for women'

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Hey neighbours,

Did you know...

“Although New Zealand is believed to have been the first country in the world to give women the right to sit in Parliament, it is one of the few which have consistently refused to elect a woman to its national assembly,” The Press wrote on September 14, 1933.

“Legislation permitting women to stand for Parliament was introduced in 1919 by the then Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. W. F. Massey, and subsequently passed.”

Lyttelton MP Elizabeth McCombs​ had just shattered that glass ceiling after a by-election, becoming New Zealand’s first woman MP.

She had previously run as the Labour candidate in Kaiapoi and Christchurch North and became the Lyttelton candidate in a by-election after the death of her husband, James, who had held the seat since 1913.

The Press noted that “Mrs McCombs’s majority is larger than any Mr McCombs secured during his whole 20 years in Parliament”.

The Press reported from a packed Returned Soldiers’ Association Hall in Lyttelton.

“‘This is the proudest moment of my life,’ said Mrs McCombs, ‘but yet one of the saddest. You all know that my husband wished more than anything else on earth that I should sit in Parliament, and we had both hoped we should sit there together. I cannot help feeling a tinge of bitterness that it was not to be.’

McCombs died before the 1935 election, and was succeeded by her son, Sir Terence McCombs, who held the Lyttelton seat until 1951.

A big thanks to those that have responded or taken part already!

I still currently need participants for my PhD study. I am looking for healthy people to come into my office (in Christchurch CBD) for around an hour, on two occasions, to complete some pen and paper activities with me (fun ones according to previous participants!).

Part of what we do, is to recruit healthy participants who match with the patients on age and gender. This is so we can try to rule out any effects differences in these may have on results. So far I haven’t been able to source enough men aged 40-50 to take part.

This is a volunteer opportunity, but you will also receive $50 petrol vouchers as compensation for your time and travel.

If you are interested please email me at the details on the poster (or visit the website listed) rather than commenting here as I will need to send you an information sheet to read over and go through some screening questions

Thanks!

High school age puppeteers needed for 10 puppets for Spreydon Youtube puppet video's

Hi all

In conjunction with Jeff's Guitar Studio's of Spreydon, ChCh (www.neighbourly.co.nz...) and www.puppetvision.co.nz...... of Tauranga,
the Fabulous Flying Fox Studio's

www.youtube.com...

are video-filming our next puppet music video's over the school holidays on the following dates and times and we are seeking no more than 10 high school volunteers to join our existing core group of volunteer puppeteers to help populate our proposed video's with another 6 puppets.

No experience is required but you will need to be between the ages of 13 and 18, physically fit (a must, puppetry is exhausting work) and it would help too if you had a performing background of some kind whether it be singing, dancing or acting.

You don't necessarily need to sing or dance or voice the puppets but we are looking for teens that are bright and bubbly, have a passion for theatre and can make one puppet move in entertaining and a convincing manner

It would be a huge plus if you have enjoyed working with or performing for kids in the past

All training will be given over the next few weekends of course

Have a look at our puppet pics posted on the website below, have a look at the 2 video's already on our FFF Youtube channel and see if any of the puppets fit your personality or that of a children or grandchildren.
