Taken from the Feminist pub.

Feel free to add your own questions - multiple choice or whatever.

So for starters:

What year did women get the vote?

And for a bonus: What criteria did these women need to have to be eligible?

Are we allowed to google for this or is that considered cheating??!!!

My off the top of my head guess is: 1918 and only married women property owners over 30?!!!

Or something like that!!

It was variable depending on age and marital status, I think?

Are we allowed to add questions?

If so: when was marital rape criminalized in the UK?

kim147 Mon 07-Oct-13 19:47:18

Just off to Google it grin

You now need to ask your own question. If you want, Your choice.

They got the vote in 1918 but had to be aged at least 30yrs old. I think!

Next question: When did women receive the right to equal pay?

In the UK 1918, 30 yrs. old, minimal property ownership, but did not have to be married.

LRD - the question was the right to equal pay - different thing unfortunately.

kim147 Mon 07-Oct-13 19:58:11

The US right to vote looks complicated - according to Wiki. Had it. lost it. had it back. Depends on the States.

I think I was "one year out"

Kim, yes, it's complicated, but nationally it was 1920; it took an amendment to the Constitution because some states allowed women's suffrage and some did not.

I should have said nationally. blush

ErrolTheDragon Mon 07-Oct-13 20:02:48

>The US right to vote looks complicated
yes - USA-wide, 1920 but some states earlier.
