Point of View

Louise Lawson


"A woman's opinions are useless to her, she may suffer unjustly, she may be wronged, but she has no power to weightily petitions against man's laws, no representatives to urge her views, her only method to produce release, redress, or change, is to ceaselessly agitate."

Louisa Lawson, speech to the inaugural meeting of the Dawn Club. Published in Dawn, July 1889.

You are to become this famous woman! A publisher and editor of "The Republican" and "The Dawn". You are to quote from her; know her ideas and policies! Remember she also is the mother of Henry Lawson.
