The plaque commemorates the centenary of womens suffrage from 1894 to 1994 and honours the pioneer women of Cleve and District.

On 18 December 1894 the South Australian Parliament passed the Constitutional Amendment (Adult Suffrage) Act. The legislation was the result of a decade-long struggle to include women in the electoral process. It not only granted women in the colony the right to vote but allowed them to stand for parliament.
