No other damage. No annotations. Published in Australia between 1888 and 1905, Louisa Lawson’s monthly journal, The Dawn, proposed a vision of society where women enjoyed increased political and social agency. Women’s suffrage was integral to such a vision, and through The Dawn Lawson was able to blend arguments for the enfranchisement of women with discussions about morality, sexual difference, family and marriage. Lawson was central to the production and success of The Dawn, with the journal being her primary public platform. Somewhat surprisingly, however, most of the existing historiography foregrounds Lawson’s personal life and her relationship with her son, author and poet, Henry Lawson. Although The Dawn is frequently cited as one of Lawson’s most significant achievements, its contents are generally not examined in any depth. – Ingrid Mahony – Australian National University Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 363, [5] pages.

Whilst researching the origin of the Destitute Silent it was discovered that part of the site had been used for four years as a Female Immigration Depot. It was the pressure of thousands of women, all penniless, many pregnant and alone, which had prompted the colonial government to build special quarters which later included a Lying-in Home and Mothers' Wards. One of the permanent displays in the Museum is about the women and children who had lived behind the high Stonewall on Kintore Avenue in the Destitute Asylum." -- from the foreword page 5.
