First and foremost we celebrate the Matriarchs of our families. And all the women of yesterday who have lived and loved through some pretty hard times.
Through wars and depression, through poverty, through the deaths of their husbands and children, through illnesses. For NZ women many of our great great grandmothers arrived to find nothing to live in but tin sheds or sod huts.
They battled on through the worst of circumstances to give us the gift of life that we hold today.
Please feel free to list the women you'd like to honor......
