Te mana pōti

I te whakamanatanga tuatahitanga o te kāwanatanga manapori ki Aotearoa nei, ko ngā tāne anake e pupuri whenua whai rawa ana ngā tāngata i whakaaetia ki te pōti. I mua i te whakamutunga o te rau tau 1800, he maha ngā wāhine kōkiri mana pōti ki Aotearoa nei. Nō te tau 1893 ka whakamanahia te wahine kia pōti. Ko Aotearoa te motu tuatahi kia whakaaetia ngā hunga wāhine katoa te pōti. Whai muri i ngā mautohe o ngā wāhine kōkiri mana pōti kātahi ka whakaaetia te wahine kia pōti. Ko tētahi o ngā pōti ko te tuku i te petihana ki te Whare Paremata.
