Amey Daldy (c.1829–17 August 1920) was an English-born New Zealand feminist and suffragist.[1][2] She was an important leader in the movement for women's suffrage in New Zealand, but later resigned as superintendent of the Auckland W.C.T.U. so that the League would not be associated with her other cause, the temperance movement.[3]
