New Zealand is part of Polynesia. So after trying Hawaii, Hawaiki, Taiwan, Tahiti and all these other places I've heard where Maori are 'supposedly' from I gave up. That question should be reworded, maybe to 'What part of the Pacific is New Zealand in?' The answer "give woman the right to vote" should be able to accept other answers such as women's suffrage, female suffrage, women vote, woman vote, female vote, women right to vote.

You might want to add two separate boxes for this hint if you want the quiz-taker to name both of them.
