Fierce Females of History


Princess Sophia Duleep Singh: Suffragette socialite

Season 3, Ep. 39

Who’s been watching Bridgerton? We’ve been obsessed, mainly with the Duke of Hastings.

So we like handsome men, sue us.

Anyway, we’re not here to talk about Regé-Jean Page - although there’s probably a whole episode in that. No, we’re here to talk about Princess Sophia Duleep Singh - the incomparable of her social seasons.

But so, so, so much more. Princess Sophia Duleep Singh was a socialite, suffragette and a perennial thorn in the tax man’s side.

Yeah girl, don’t pay those taxes.

In this episode, you’ll hear about how Sophia navigated her way through the English social scene to obtain her goals, fought to preserve her culture, trained championship dogs (yep) and campaigned for women’s rights.

She’s the coolest. Listen now.
