In 1909 Muriel Matters flew over London in an airship dropping Votes for Women leaflets. The first woman to make a speech in the House of Commons, as a protester, she worked in the slums of Lambeth, and her brother became MP for Kennington. A hundred years after women were granted the vote, Robert Wainwright introduces his new book about this little known but influential suffragette.
