Women’s History Month: March 2016
‘Muriel Matters! The story of an Australian woman who came to London and became a suffragette.’
Muriel Matters was an actress from Adelaide who arrived in London in 1905. She joined the campaign for Votes for Women and undertook a number of daring exploits including chaining herself to the Ladies Gallery in the House of Commons. A member of the Women's Freedom League Muriel Matters was, like many others, imprisoned as the result of her campaigning exploits. The film will be introduced by Deirdre Brock MP and Dr Clare Eustance from the University of Greenwich will give a short talk on the Women’s Freedom League before the film.
