AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This article forms the basis for a chapter in Dalziell's later work Settler Romances and the Australian Girl. It examines the role of the 'white woman' in colonial contexts and its use for Western middle-class feminists today. It's focus is on late 19th- and early 20th-century figures of the sympathetic white woman and Australian girl and the implications their representation has for recent studies on white women and British colonialism, and for feminist cross-cultural engagement.
