How Muriel Matters Became a Suffragist
An illustrated interlude on how South Australia becoming the first place in the world to grant women dual suffrage in 1894 led to an Adelaide girl being the first woman to 'speak' in the House of Commons and take flight as the first aeronautical protester. The life of Muriel Matters, whose family were closely involved in the formation of the Women's Suffrage League, could never have evolved had she not spent her formative years in Adelaide. Learn how everything was connected and why her use of a leather belt and chains was pivotal in winning the vote for UK women.
