Matson is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2002 she graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Women's Studies.
Matson was elected as part of a four-member team called "Feminist Leadership NOW" that took office July 21, 2009. Terry O'Neill of Maryland is President, Bonnie Grabenhofer of Illinois is executive vice president, Allendra Letsome of Maryland is membership vice president.
Matson was NOW's Prairie States Regional Director before taking national office and served on National NOW's Board of Directors for three years. During this time, she traveled to Iowa to participate in NOW PAC's historic campaign to elect Hillary Clinton president of the United States.
To date, Matson has served as the longest standing member of the National NOW Young Feminist Task Force (2003-2008). She co-authored a resolution that created the 2006 Young Feminist Summit in Albany, N.Y., and also authored and passed a bylaws amendment to incorporate virtual chapters in the organization.
Matson was also the youngest-ever President of a state chapter when she was elected to lead Minnesota NOW in 2004.
Matson has said that her personal experience as an anorexia survivor led her to feminist activism. Recently she has spoken out against Ralph Lauren's extreme digital retouching of model Filippa Hamilton. “Certainly apologies are due to her personally,” Matson told Radar Online. “But what I’m really concerned about here is the message that that this has sent to millions of pre-teens, daughters, mothers, sisters – women around the country and the world."
