Women’s rights – A list of countries showing when they allowed women to vote.

Sorry I missed off the title!

Opher's World

It is quite sobering to look at the year when women were allowed the vote.

Here is a list. It’s a bit crude because there are instances where aboriginals were still denied voting rights.

It is quite shocking to see countries such as Switzerland not allowing females to vote until 1971!!

To think that some countries only gave women the right to vote in the last couple of decades!!

There is much that needs doing in order to gain equality throughout the world.

Well done New Zealand!! Shame upon so many countries!!
