A Cowardly Libel. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

A Cowardly Libel. I had thought that every human being in Queens land honored the very name of woman. I had thought that no one had fallen so low as to sweep ingly condemn the sex of his mother, even though political differences offcimes make us forget that we are all men and all brothers. But, Arthur Rutledge, Sam Griffith's Attorney-General, in his speech at Charters Towers, uttered a foul and uncalled-for libel against the sex. His words have sped through the length and breadth of Queensland. Women who are as womanly as women were ever womanly have been traduced and insulted, traduced without cause,! but that their sphere of life is different from their | traducer, insulted in their womanhood xby the evil mind of him who insulted" them—insulted only because they are women. Was-she not a woman , That Mother of Oars, Whose constant love w6n our childish heart, whose pure true affection raised her above the earth and above the heavens, and shamed the angels who rejoice in the smile ...
