    Louisa Lawson (1848–1920) was a noted Australian social reformer, writer and publisher who lived and worked in Sydney. In 1888, she founded the influential The Dawn: A Journal for Australian Women, which covered women's issues and advocated for women’s rights to vote and hold public office.

    Ms Lawson also launched the campaign for female suffrage and helped form the Dawn Club where women met to discuss issues and gain experience in public speaking. The magazine and the club were located near this public space.

    The Womenhood Suffrage League of NSW printed its pamphlets at The Dawn free of charge and used its offices in its early years. Ms Lawson was elected to its inaugural council in 1891. When the NSW Woman’s Suffrage Bill was passed in 1902, Parliament described her as “the Mother of Suffrage in New South Wales”.

    A previous proposal to name this location ‘Napoleon Plaza’ commemorating a former local business owner and nearby street did not receive community support.

    Your feedback will help us assess the level of community support for the proposed new name.

    You can provide your feedback via our submission form or email sydneyyoursay@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au by 5pm Monday 18 December 2017.

    Council will review this feedback before submitting the chosen name to the Geographical Names Board of NSW.
