LGBTQ+ History Month 2022: An online performance from Queer Tales from Wales

A Moral Amazon: The Story of Miss Amy Dillwyn - Gender Studies

USW's Centre for Gender Studies invites you to an online performance by Queer Tales From Wales

On Wed, 23 Feb 2022, 13:00-14:00, for LGBTQ+ History Month 2022, Queer Tales From Wales presents: A Moral Amazon: The Story of Miss Amy Dillwyn

Born a tomboy in Swansea in 1845, Amy Dillwyn spent many years searching for a meaningful existence. This lively dramatised presentation explores her life: how she became a successful novelist and a cigar-smoking industrialist, stood for public office and stood up for women’s rights. Amy would become a famous figure in South Wales. But she never forgot her one true love – the girl who would not love her back.

Written, researched and narrated by Jane Hoy, with Helen Sandler as Miss Dillwyn.
