Today is 121 years since New Zealand gave women the right to vote! Our suffragettes were led by Kate Sheppard, a lady who kicked butt! PLUS she celebrated changing the world by being yourself! - “We are tired of having a ‘sphere’ doled out to us, and of being told that anything outside that sphere is ‘unworthy’. We want to be natural just for a change….we must be ourselves.”

The world’s smallest known vertebrate is a frog the size of a housefly
At an average of 7.7 millimeters long, the newfound Paedophryne amauensis is a hair smaller than the previous record holder, the Southeast Asian fish species Paedocypris progenetica, whose females measure about 7.9 millimeters.
