A South Australian Suffragist Abroad:  The Grille Exhibition


Muriel Matters left South Australia in 1905 to further her theatrical career in London.  She soon found herself involved in the 'Votes for Women's campaign, working with the Women's Freedom League.  In 1908 she chained herself to the grille of the Ladies Gallery of the House of Commons and a section of this grille is currently on display in the South Australian Parliament, as well as other memorabilia.
