Correct Answer: Allow women to vote
Info: Suffrage campaigners, led by Kate Sheppard, compiled a series of massive petitions calling on Parliament to grant the vote to women in the early 1890s. In recent years Sheppard’s contribution to New Zealand’s history has been acknowledged on the $10 note. Most other democracies—including the United States—didn’t grant women the right to vote until after WWI.
