Before Ita Butrose there was Louisa Lawson. Before The Women’s Weekly in 1933 there was The Dawn in 1888. Before Henry there was his mother, Louisa.
This is the story of The Dawn and the struggle to give women a voice.It is the story of Louisa Lawson, the power of words and early feminist printing.
