For many years historians have portrayed the convict women in the colony of NSW as a vile pack of baggage whose chances for reform were slight. But for many women the colony offeres opportunities that were denied them in England. There were greater opportunities in NSW for all women to improve their econimic position and status than were available in England. Women did support themselves and their families and make an important contribution to the economic structure and development of the colony.
