Summary Note Women's Movements has been developed especially for senior secondary students of History and is part of the Nelson Modern History series. Each book in the series is based on the understanding that History is an interpretive study of the past by which you also come to better appreciate the making of the modern world. Developing understandings of the past and present in senior History extends on the skills you learnt in earlier years. As senior students you will use historical skills, including research, evaluation, synthesis, analysis and communication, and the historical concepts, such as evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, significance, empathy, perspectives and contestability, to understand and interpret societies from the past. The activities and tasks in Women's Movements have been written to ensure that you develop the skills and attributes you need in senior History subjects. In 1891 a petition calling for women to have equal voting rights with men was presented to the parliament of Victoria. Named the Monster Petition because of its size, it included signatures of approximately 30 000 women and was roughly 260 metres long. The signatures were gathered by members of the Victorian Christian Temperance Union and the Australian Women's Suffrage Society. While Victorian women did not get the vote until 1908, the petition is an important reminder of the campaigns for women's suffrage. The Monster Petition is now held by the Public Record Office Victoria. Petitions were also used by the women's suffrage movements in other Australian colonies, New Zealand, the United States and Great Britain.
