The Right To Vote: When Southeast Asian Countries Began?
In 1893, New Zealand became the first country in the world to grant women the right to vote.
By the 1950s, two-thirds of countries around the world had adopted universal suffrage, which allows all adult citizens equal rights to vote.
The last European country to allow women to vote was Switzerland in 1971. In 1994, South Africa became the last African democracy to give equal voting rights to all following the end of apartheid. In Afghanistan, women gained and lost the right to vote several times.
They have continuously held the right to vote since 2004.
Thus, for Southeast Asian countries, when was the right to vote granted to their citizens?
