Our 2014 Suffrage Day Breakfast was once again held at Nova Cafe on the 19th of September 2014. This year we were celebrating 121 years since New Zealand became the first country in the world to give women the right to vote. This was a very popular event as always and was attended by approximately 20 OWLS members, including special guest Justice Helen Winkelmann. During breakfast OWLS took a collection for Women’s Refuge to give back to New Zealand women less fortunate than ourselves.
Our speaker this year was Sandra Clair, the founder of Artemis, a successful Dunedin organic healthcare range. Sandra was an engaging and stimulating speaker who talked about the history of family healthcare and the important role women have always played in keeping their families well. Sandra also spoke about the range of health teas and body care products she has developed and provided some free samples.
Thank you very much to Sandra for speaking at this event, and to naturopath Emily Boese for her time. For more information about the Artemis range please visit their website http://artemis.co.nz.
