Are We There Yet? celebrates the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Aotearoa – but how far has New Zealand really come in the 125 years since women gained the vote?

This contemporary exhibition uses the historic anniversary as a springboard to examine the successes and speed-bumps of gender equality so far, and where to next. Equal pay, reproductive rights, gendered violence, online trolling, legal rights and body image are all up for discussion and interrogation.

Photographs of trailblazers, ground-breaking marches, and posters and publications from the Museum’s collection will be on display, including rarely shown photography by Gil Hanly and Robin Morrison.

A short film directed by renowned film-maker Gaylene Preston has been created especially for Are We There Yet?
