This talk will look at some underlying questions about Kate Sheppard and her work: What were the qualities that made her a successful leader? What was her motivation to work for justice and equality for women and how did she sustain this work over many years?

Margaret Lovell-Smith is a historian and author with a particular interest in the nineteenth-century women’s movement. She is a descendant of Kate Sheppard's second husband, William Lovell-Smith.
