Harlots – Monologue (Margaret)

A monologue from the tv series created by Moira Buffini & Alison Newman


Why you driving him away? He’s an easy keeper. You could have him dropping jewels on your pillow but no, you provoke him to this spite.

Indulge him, take his contract. I’m thinking about your future. You have never ever had to sell yourself for pence or beg for food.

My ma sold me for a pair of shoes. The only safety is in money. Money… is a woman’s only power in this world.

Make it your solace and your dream and one-day wealth, real lasting wealth will make you free.
