    An Honour Thesis that discusses the meaning of citizenship, its historical development and what rights are presumed when one is an Australian citizen. It describes how unwed mothers were treated as non-citizens because of their status. Participants discuss the human and civil rights violations they suffered because of this loss of status - leading to the ultimate denial of their rights as mothers - the theft of their newborns for the adoption market.
