That Daring Australian Girl
Posted on: Tue 6 Feb 2018
Muriel Matters was born in Adelaide in 1877 and grew up amid a momentous progression in women’s rights.
Her career as an actress took her to the UK, where she was prominent in the movement for women’s suffrage. She gained notoriety and eventually tasted victory, so it’s surprising that many South Aussies haven’t heard of her.
