AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Lee detects a connection between feminism and nationalism in the pages of the Dawn. The domestic focus of the Dawn derives from evangelical ideology of the early 19C where the moral power of the home, overseen by women, was seen as the foundation of a strong nation. Lee finds these same arguments in the publications of the Australian Natives association and identifies a link between the Dawn's feminism and the nationalism of the time.
