Footsteps Towards Freedom

My entry for One Word Sunday: Monument

From 1803 to 1853, almost 13,000 convict women together with 2,000 children arrived

Three women and two children have now been immortalised in bronze sculptures on Hobart’s Macquarie Wharf — the arrival point for the convicts”

“The Footsteps Towards Freedom project was inspired by the experiences of convict women and children who made the journey to Van Diemen’s Land and were imprisoned at Hobart’s historic Cascades Female Factory site”

The above narative is an excerpt taken from an ABC news article
