Story: Women’s movement

Albert Park demonstration, 1971

In 1971 women's liberation activists took part in the Auckland Centennial Parade. They carried a coffin, ending their mock funeral procession at the statue of Queen Victoria in Albert Park. They are shown here arriving, with a speech making links between the early suffragettes and their own struggle for equality.
