Event:
With special guest speaker Frances Bedford MP

December 2019 marks the 125th anniversary of landmark legislation that enabled women in South Australia to vote in general elections, and to stand as members of Parliament.

Come and celebrate this milestone by attending a special screening of Muriel Matters, with special guest speaker Frances Bedford MP on Saturday 16 November, 2pm at Domain Theatre, Marion Cultural Centre. This is a FREE community event and all are welcome.

Muriel Matters is a SA produced documentary celebrating one of Adelaide's most fascinating historic women, Adelaide-born actress Muriel Matters. An Australian-born suffragist, Muriel Matters 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.

Frances has been an Independent Member of Parliament for Florey since 2017, representing the constituency since 1997, she is the longest serving female Member of Parliament currently elected to the Lower House.
