What was the suffrage movement?

Since woman's rights was a big issue in the olden days our reading topic this term related . We watched a youtube video about the suffragette movement and wrote a 25 word summary on "what was the suffragette movement". . I found this quite hard because it isn't a skill that I have mastered (summary) but talking to my group helped me make my connection.


  1. Kia ora Mia, Javeylor, Zahra, Nazella, Mishaan and Jorja,
    Thank you for sharing your summary of the women's suffragette movement. Kate Sheppard was an amazing women for her time. I am going to Wellington this weekend and I am going to go to He Tohu at the National Library to see the Women's Suffrage Petition in real life and learn more about the stories behind it. You could check it out on the website. Had you heard of the Women’s Suffrage Petition before?

    1. Thank you for your comment, Tania. It was very interesting learning about the women's suffragette movement. We learnt many facts about the suffragette movement and it was hard writing a summary in 25 words. I haven't heard about the Women’s Suffrage Petition before, but it sounds very interesting.

    2. Hey Tania
      Thank you for commenting on our work. I will be sure to check out the website for more information. I have heard of the "Women's Suffrage Petition" but never looked into it and learnt more about it as we have did now.
