About This Show

Suffragist, industrialist, philanthropist; Amy Dillwyn was a cigar-smoking, adventure-seeking, uncompromising change-maker. A trailblazing radical ahead of her time. A woman who became a legend in her own lifetime. This is her story, adapted from her own words as found in her diaries and novels. Presented at Queen Victoria’s court as a daughter of a radical Swansea MP and friend of the Prince of Wales, Amy was destined for a life as a wife and mother, living on one of the rich estates of South Wales. Amy had other ideas. A best-selling novelist, pioneering industrialist and campaigner for the rights of women and social justice; her ground-breaking public life was only matched in passion by the desires of her private life.
