Caroline Chisholm, all brain and brio, spiky and mouthy, sexy and witty, takes on the patriarchy of 1840s Sydney, where the men outnumber women 20 to 1. Juggling children, marriage, a lover, and the women who depend on her, this rebellious, ‘nasty woman’ rips society apart, tapping into the power of the women behind the men.
