Muriel Matters screening and special guest speaker Frances Bedford MP.
This locally produced documentary is about one of Adelaide’s most fascinating historic women, Adelaide-born actress Muriel Matters. An Australian-born suffragist who campaigned in Britain in the struggle for women’s rights, pulling off a series of brave and theatrical stunts in the early1900s.
Guest speaker Frances Bedford MP, is the founder of The Muriel Matters Society in 2009. The Society was formed to research and promote Muriel’s life and work, and the importance of the continuation of her philosophy of equality and access which remains current today.
