ABSTRACT

This conculsion presents some closing thoughts on key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book provides an initial analysis of the disability rights, women's liberation and Indigenous rights movements. Much of the knowledge presented here was drawn from documents or recordings left by movement participants and commentators. This analysis would benefit from a more extensive study, particularly because many movement participants did not preserve their stories in documents, or receive immortality through commentators such as journalists. Surveying the general population about their awareness of struggles, their knowledge of movements past and present, and their engagement with the ideals of the movements would shed light on the current level of public consciousness. An exploration of women, Indigenous Australians and people with disability regarding their contemporary opinions about struggle, awareness of struggle, and understandings of past histories would also provide insight into a generational view of struggles and inform collective thought regarding future movement development.
