One Word Photo Challenge: Chameleon

Wellington 2 055-Edit@0,1x

Good morning from a  cold Hastings morning.  Winter has now arrived for us and after the long summer and virtually no autumn it is hard to get used to.  So, to give us something to look forward to, the Women’s Centre is entering a float for our annual blossom parade in September. We are celebrating the fact that women got the vote on 19th September 1893.  So we are all going as suffragettes.  That means corsets, long skirts and big floral hats.  So yesterday we had a meeting to plan what we will be doing.  Our colours are the suffragette colours of purple for dignity, white for purity and green for hope. So something to look forward to in the spring.

Suffrage and beyond

On 19 September 1893 the governor, Lord Glasgow, signed a new Electoral Act into law. As a result of this landmark legislation, New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world in which all women had the right to vote in parliamentary elections.

In most other democracies – including Britain and the United States – women did not win the right to the vote until after the First World War. New Zealand’s world leadership in women’s suffrage became a central part of our image as a trail-blazing ‘social laboratory’.

NZ Women’s Suffrage movement.

About this photo.  The One Word Photo Challenge hosted by Jennifer really is a challenge in the true sense of the word.  This week it is chameleon.  Now, where to find a chameleon here in New Zealand.  I just didn’t know what image to use.  In the end I chose this image taken at Wellington Zoo.  The window reflections are hiding the chimpanzee. Well, sort of.
