On September 19, 1893 New Zealand Governor Lord Glasgow signed a new election act into the law of the land. This was a landmark piece of legislation as New Zealand became the FIRST self governing country in the entire world to allow universal suffrage to all citizens. Women now had the right to vote in parliamentary elections. This landmark law was achieved as the result of years of work led by Kate Sheppard.

Thank you all for commenting on my post yesterday and a couple folks got this answer correct and big shout to them. The treadmills at Lifetime Fitness in Katy have running courses where the film is of cool places to visit and run for you to watch while working out. One area is the South Island run and this is where I learned New Zealand was the first.
After seeing all of these filmed runs numerous times now, I have to say I do want to travel to New Zealand as it is on my bucket list. I have to walk very fast on the treadmill as due to hip surgery I am not suppose to run anymore. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to Australia for one trip and it was fabulous with one of numerous highlights included night sailing on Sydney Harbor.
