Psychic Artist – Stephen Cox (part 2)

Spirit Artist

In this, the second of two videos, Stephen Cox continues to emancipate my spirit guide from the paper.

She has wonderful eyes. I love her eyes.

And, from what Stephen is describing I like the personal qualities she is oozing.

Strong willed, beautiful, feminine, good communicator, ready to stand up for the rights of others and a strong sense of justice.

Mmm. Those qualities are close to home.

And, as I am listening to Stephen for the nth time, I’m now making other connections to this woman. Stephen mentions New Zealand, a place I have visited but, in the context of women and suffrage, Wikipedia reports that “New Zealand in 1893 is often said to be the first country in the world to give women the right to vote.” I didn’t know that and I wonder if Stephen did.

There may be some discrepancies as far as dates are concerned but for the sake of this project I thought I’d pursue this a little more.

Suffrage

I was born in South Australia and among the things that this State of Australia is known for is being a legislative leader.

In 1894, South Australia granted universal suffrage, i.e. all women (not just property-owners who could vote in local elections from 1861) were given the right to vote, the first State in Australia to do so. In the same year, women were also granted the right to stand for parliament, making South Australia the first place in the world to do so.

To paraphrase Alice in Wonderland, this does get curiouser and curiouser. Who is this woman and do she and I share more than an Adelaide connection?

That will take a lot of digging but my curiosity is wheted. Thank you so much Stephen and of course, my Lady Guide.

What does this have to do with the paranormal? Maybe a little. Maybe a lot!

Here’s the Timeline for Women gaining the vote in South Australia (full credit given to Parliament SA)

1857

The start of parliamentary government in South Australia.

All adult men (including Aboriginal men) except criminals or the insane, gain the right to vote for the House of Assembly and to stand as candidates. Men owning or leasing property gain the vote for the Legislative Council.

1861

Women property owners gain the right to vote in Municipal Council elections.

Women ratepayers are granted the right to vote in municipal and local council elections – the first in Australia. But they are not allowed to stand as candidates.

1870s

State education develops in South Australia.

The Advanced Secondary School for Girls and the University of Adelaide give women access to education. The South Australian Government insisted that women who studied at the University must also be allowed to take their degrees.

      Hi Sue

      I havent heard from Stephen for a while. If he doesnt respond here perhaps you could contact him directly through his website.

      I am intending to set up a blogroll here but am reluctant to do so because the http function has been compromised.

      When I get it fixed then I feel I will sned out a call for link exchanges 🙂

      In the meantime, Im here if I can help.

      Cheers

      Rosemary
