Summary
From 1787 to 1853 over 25,000 women, nearly half of them Irish, were transported in the dark holds of ships on a 16,000 mile journey to the other side of the world as bonded labour. Arriving alone, or with small children in the colonies, these single, married and widowed women lived, loved, toiled and died under Australian skies. In a two-year period during the Famine, over 4,000 young orphan girls, inmates of the overcrowded Irish workhouses, were carefully selected and transported on what became known as the Famine Bride Ships to the colonies where men outnumbered women 10 to 1 in the Outback. The series will restore the historical importance of convict Irish women and the young orphan girls in building the Australian nation
