Women were excluded from voting in ancient Greece and in the Republicans in Rome. Furthermore, in the few democracies that emerged in Europe until the end of the 18th century. The issue of women's suffrage turned out to be a problem in the 19th century, and the struggle was especially intense in Britain and the USA. These nations were not the first to grant women the right to vote, at least not at the national level. In the early years of the 20th century, women had won the right to vote in federal elections in New Zealand, Australia, Finland and Norway.
Some other nations followed the same procedure as Soviet Russia, Canada, Germany, Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia, USA, Hungary, Great Britain, Burma, Ecuador, South Africa, Brazil, Uruguay, Thailand, Turkey, Cuba and the Philippines.
Total suffrage for women was introduced in India by the constitution in the late 1940s. In Pakistan, women voted in the 1956 national elections. In 1971, Switzerland allowed women to vote in federal polls and in most cantons, and in 1973 women received total suffrage in Syria.
The United Nations Convention on the Political Rights of Women, adopted in 1952, provides that women will have the right to vote in all elections on equal terms with men, without any discrimination. Historically, the United Kingdom and the USA have provided representative samples of the struggle for women's suffrage in the 19th and 20th centuries.
