suffrage means giving women the right to cast their votes. Right to vote was
denied to women in the beginning. It was argued that women would not exercise
this right independently and would cast their votes by the dictates of their
husband, father or other male relatives.
with political awakening among women and its demand by them, they got the Right
to Vote for the first time in England in 1918, in USA in 1920 and in India in 1950.
Now, in almost all the democratic countries of the world, women have been given
the Right to Vote. (3)
