When did women get the right to vote

When did all women get the right to vote?

Outside Europe, there were some countries that introduced women's suffrage earlier. In New Zealand and Australia they were a few years ahead of the motherland in Great Britain. In the case of New Zealand even a proud 25 years. Shortly after the declaration of independence, the United States of America introduced the right to vote for women as early as 1788. Of course, it is not only here that one has to consider that the indigenous population was excluded from the right to be correctly described as "the right to vote for white women".

In other countries, too, the introduction of women's suffrage did not automatically bring about political equality for other previously oppressed sections of the population. In most cases, decades of discrimination followed. In South Africa, for example, white women were granted the right to vote as early as 1930. Indian women, on the other hand, were not granted the right to vote until 1984 and blacks only ten years later, in 1994.
