The Welsh Women of Patagonia
BBC RADIO WALES
Sian Harries explores whether the Welsh women of Patagonia were the first in the world to get the vote.
It’s over 150 years since a group of Welsh people set up a “little Wales beyond Wales” in Patagonia, South America. The history books are full of tales of brave men who transformed the hostile desert into luscious ‘Welsh farmland, who befriended the indigenous people and built a colony so successful, Welsh is still spoken there today.
But what about the women who went with them?
Many believe “Without the women the colony would never have survived,” and yet their stories remain unheard.
Until now. Sian travels to Patagonia herself to meet the descendants of this intrepid journey to uncover the adventures of their great-grandmothers – their courage, indomitable strength and sacrifice. Were they granted the right to vote half a century before the women back home in Wales? And if so, why don’t we know about it?
