Khartoum Place, off Lorne Street in the city, is a place commemorating three struggles, really. First, the name Khartoum itself comes from the ill-fated Gordon.
The main feature commemorates another struggle -- that of New Zealand suffragettes, and their supporters, for the universal right to vote for women in this country.

The artwork has had its own struggle to remain here in Khartoum Place, but it's still there.
Khartoum Place is a good place to take a small break from the hustle-bustle of inner city Auckland. I'm fond of the water flowing down, and really do hope that won't change. A nice place for this women's commemoration.
