Juanita Nielsen (nee Smith) was an Australian heiress to the Mark Foy's retail fortune. In the 1970s Nielsen was the publisher of NOW, an alternative newspaper in the Sydney suburb of Kings Cross, New South Wales, where she lived. She conducted a vigorous editorial campaign in support of the 'green ban' movement against the redevelopment of Victoria Street by F. W. Theeman's real-estate company, Victoria Point Pty Ltd. She played a prominent role in mobilizing local residents against the demolition of Victoria Street's historic terraces and the eviction of their tenants.
