Voting hasn’t always been the same through out Australia’s history. In the early 1800’s women couldn’t  even vote because people thought they were we were to emotional and not educated enough about politics and voting to get a say. That’s why in the late 1800’s women started wanting change  for once and respect.  Women started debating, wrote articles and petitions along with protesting and could even go to jail for wanting rights. But in later on the women got what they wanted a right to vote and have a say in 1902. Australia was one of the first official countries to let women vote for the whole of Australia (federal elections) and to have there say go to the Federal Parliament. But it still took round about 2 decades for all the other states to follow on. Even tho now women are aloud to vote Indigenous Australians still weren’t permitted to vote (unfair).  But then finally in 1949 Indigenous people in Australia were aloud to vote in the federal elections,but only the ones who fort in the army could vote not all Indigenous people were aloud yet. It took another 13 years (thats a long time) until all Indigenous Australians were aloud to vote in federal elections. Now a days your aloud to vote only when your 18 or older, and that was not until 1973 that you aloud to vote unless you were 21 or older. Australia is one of many countries were you actually aloud have to vote or have a say, and if you don’t vote because it is illegal not to vote you get fined a small amount and that rule started in 1924 and is still going.

I understand that lots of rules have changes over time and it affects us in good and bad ways.

Back in the day why did they chose 21 and not another number?

Prompt: But how did he/she get up there…..

I was in the car with my dog moose (moose – i – bear) and we just came out of the gym when i went to start the engine of my car. I looked at moose to make sure he was sitting on the chairs and not somewhere he would get stuck on our way home. As i looked i saw him stuck at the top of the sits and when I saw that I thought to myself ” but how did he get up there…” there was no steps, no ledges he must have just had so much energy he could climb it by himself.

The btn was about people who have perspectives about Australia day. For most of us it is a celebration for the British in 1700s who found Australia for us. but for the some of the aborigines it is a day that they remember as invasion day because that is when the British took their land. on the 200th year of Australia day 26th of Jan 1988 you would have been able to see a lot of aborigines protesting. Some people thought we should change the day of Australia day so most aborigines could celebrate it as a great day and not invasion day. it’s of people thought we should change the day of Australia day to 1st of Jan because thats when our country federated, some people think the 25th of Jan a day before the British arrived so the last day the aborigines owned the land and some people think Australia should share the 25th of April which is ANZAC day as well as some people think it should be on the day Australia’s  first federal parliament was opened or wattled day in September. Australia has not been changed yet but they are thinking about changing it.

I understand the different ways people can react to the same day

why did they send convicts to Australia and not other countries?

Australia day is where family gets together and has a big bqq right well there is actually a different reason why we have it. Back in 1700 ( around there I am not 100% sure what date ) captain Arthur Phillip was leading the first fleet to Australia they weren’t sure what to expect but they thought it would not be good. They arrived in Australia at 26th of January 1788 in Camp Cove that is in Port Jackson ( around Canberra )  and they stayed there for years and years and while they were staying there they discovered other parts of Australia to. Australia day actually used to be called foundation day but the people didn’t like the name so they changed it to Australia day which is held on the 26th of January every year.

I know now that Australia day is named by the people because they didn’t agree

Why didn’t they chose a different captain?

how did they chose the name foundation day?
