Members of the Women’s Social and Political League hold a reception in Wellington for Mrs and Miss Seddon (the wife and daughter of Premier Richard Seddon) in 1912. At this time many leagues were ceasing or had ceased activity. The membership was aging, and some of the battles in which the leagues had taken part had been won. An outstanding exception to this was women’s admission to Parliament. The right to stand would not be granted to women until 1919.
