    1 thought on “Miss Muriel Matters: The Australian actress who became one of London's most famous suffragists

    1. The short version is that Muriel Matters was an Australian actress and acclaimed elocutionist who went to Britain and ended up participating in the suffrage movement in the early 1900s, and went on to work with underprivileged children, among other things. She was also one of the first women in a flying machine, and was - as far as we can tell - the first person to engage in aerial leafletting: she tossed Votes for Women pamphlets over the side of the airship basket. She was amazing and this bi [...]

    2. A lot of historical research has clearly gone into piecing together Miss matters life, but I was sometimes uncertain about the tone of the biography. Every chapter seemed to excitedly start with a new character, which by the end was exhausting. The overwhelming embellishment of how brilliant her life was was wearing. Her life sounded bloody hard and maybe those challenges could have been acknowledged a bit more, and some historical context about other women's roles at the time could have helped [...]

    3. Loved meeting Muriel. What a woman! Great insights into the Women's movement in UK. I learnt the difference between a 'suffragette' and a 'suffragist'. I learnt about the strength of women around the world. Great book to pass on to your daughters.

    4. An interesting young woman during an intetesting time in history. A great example of following through on your convictions in the face of adversity. Well done Muriel and all who work towards positive change. Thank you, Robert Wainwright for introducing me to Muriel.

    5. like a 3.5* really? I'm not really Reader of biography but I had to read one for an assignment and hearing about lesser-known aspects and factions of the women's suffrage movement was really fascinating.

    6. An extremely well-written biography of an amazing woman who should be much more well-known- especially in her place of birth here in Adelaide!

    7. A great read, just loved it. I didn't know about Muriel until this book was in a box of books from Dymocks to choose from. Like the sound of her story. Lived up to expectations.

    8. It’s not just women fiction writers and historians uncovering stories of women marginalised from the pages of history, as Wainwright’s biography shows. At first, I found it off-putting and unusual for a man to write about one of Australia’s most eminent suffragists, but I found his treatment to be sympathetic and insightful. Muriel was an Australian elocutionist who visited London to play the stage, but who was caught up in the burgeoning suffrage cause. Because of her orator skills and he [...]

    9. Muriel Matters is a name we should all know but probably don’t. She was an inspiring woman, activist, and social re-former who played a vital role in the suffrage movement. Journalist and author Robert Wainwright has penned her biography, Miss Muriel Matters, and it’s a book that should restore Muriel’s name to the history books as it celebrates the stuff that truly, ahem, matters.To read the rest of this review please visit the following website: magazine.100percentrock/reVisit 100% Ro [...]
