Kate Sheppard's successful campaign to win the vote for women changed the world. But it wasn't easy. Her battle for equality is brought to glorious life as 'that bloody woman' takes on political adversary and the bearded bastion of nineteenth-century patriarchy, Richard 'King Dick' Seddon. In a kick-ass punk rock opera full of insight, intelligence and infectious tunes, the sparks fly as our most famous suffragist is transformed from a two dimensional head on the $10 note to an in your-face feminist firebrand raising hell.
