    Women have always used their femininity to leverage social dynamics to seek optimum results for themselves and use men as a disposable economic engine.

    Women would like nothing more than if 90% of the world’s men killed themselves over them.

    Men are not socially astute enough to grasp this..what appears like feminine caring is a brutal play for resources.

    Womens rights didnt really start coming inline with mens rights until the mid to late 80s. Why did women want to vote. Same reason any group would want to vote. They felt under represented and they their needs were being ignored.

    Wyoming gave women the vote waayy before suffragette stuff, soit had enough voters to become a state. Nww Zealand gave women the vote waayyy before that. Women wanted to vote because they deserved to. they had to fight for it, because white men wouldn’t give it to them.

    You need to go back to the time of the French revolution. The revolution had been for gender rights, as well as class rights, but after they brought in “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” women were excluded and that started a movement to include the women who fought along side the men in the revolution. Olympe de Gouges wrote “Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen” in 1791. From then on women started to demand the vote.

    In Canada “in the 19th century, female property holders could demand municipal voting rights on the principle of “no taxation without representation.” Propertied women in Québec voted unchallenged between 1809 and 1849, when the word “male” was inserted into Québec’s franchise act.”. However, women with property were granted voting rights elsewhere in the 19th century.

    “On 24 May 1918 all female citizens aged 21 and over became eligible to vote in federal elections”.

    At that point women were not considered “a person” under the law and that meant they could not hold certain positions. This was not granted until 1929. It wasn’t until 25 April 1940 that women had gained the vote in all provinces.

    In terms of the workforce, I do not think you could say it is even equal today.
