Kate Sheppard’s Walk

What started as one hundred White Camellia’s being donated to Christchurch’s Botanical Gardens became the Kate Sheppard Memorial Walk in 1990. The White Camellia was the symbol of Woman’s Suffrage movement.

To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of her successful campaign in 1993, a new White Camellia was created and named the ‘Kate Sheppard’.

All along the walk are plaques acknowledging all the women based groups that shape the city of Christchurch and New Zealand today.

You Go Girls!!!
