The Charlotte Project
The Charlotte Project Appeal is a fundraising appeal hosted by the SHCF and is the first initiative of Wingecarribee Women Writers.
The project is to erect a bronze statue of Charlotte Atkinson (1796 – 1867) in Berrima Park near the children’s playground.
Charlotte Atkinson (1796-1867) was a trail blazing author, artist and pioneer in the fight for women’s legal rights. She defended a landmark case in the Supreme Court of NSW to retain custody of her own children, after suffering violence at the hands of her second husband.
