    Women MPs are today celebrating a hundred years since women were allowed to stand for Parliament

    Women MPs are today celebrating a hundred years since women were allowed to stand for Parliament


    It took 14 years before a woman was elected.

    Since then, the Prime Minister told Parliament, women have made a significant contribution.

    Jacinda Ardern says it means women can be who they want to be.

    Speaking from experience, Ardern says they can be a mother and many other things - including a partner and an advocate.

    She says boys, if they choose, can be Prime Minister, too.
