Bee Rowlatt's extraordinary journey in search of the life and legacy of the first celebrity feminist: Mary Wollstonecraft.
Toddler in tow, Bee Rowlatt embarked on an extraordinary journey in search of the life and legacy of the first celebrity feminist: Mary Wollstonecraft. From the wild coasts of Norway to a naked re-birthing in California, via the blood-soaked streets of revolutionary Paris, Bee learned what drove her hero on and what’s been won and lost over the centuries in the battle for equality. On this biographical treasure hunt she found herself consulting a witch, a porn star, a quiet Norwegian archivist and the tenants of a blighted council estate in Leeds – getting much more than she bargained for. As heard on Radio 4 Woman's Hour
