Enact Woman's Suffrage is a decision that can be taken by all civilized nations, that has elections. It shows up in the decision tab after 1870, and can be taken once a list of conditions are met 1) the nation has researched Social Science and Revolution & Counterrevolution 2) the upper house has to be at least 30% socialist or 30% liberal 3) and either at least 15% of the population wants a voting reform or the country has universal voting 4) average consciousness is at least 4

It reduces war exhaustion by 2 and makes some changes to the voting patterns. The rich (Capitalists mini.pngcapitalists and Aristocrats mini.pngaristocrats) vote counts 1% less. The middle strata (Officers mini.pngofficers, clergy, Bureaucrats mini.pngbureaucrats, Clerks mini.pngclerks and Artisans mini.pngartisans) vote counts 2% more. The poor population (Craftsmen mini.pngcraftsmen, Farmers mini.pngfarmers, Labourers mini.pnglabourers and Soldiers mini.pngsoldiers) vote 5% more. It also reduces militancy in all non-colonial states by 0.02 pr. month. The effect lasts until the end of the game, or until the Government type changes to one without elections.

Since every POP represents a nuclear family, there isn't actually any women in the game.


The idea of Woman's Suffrage increasingly gained traction in Western society throughout the 19th century. First advocated in the writings of early liberal philosophers, such as England's Mary Woolstonecraft or John Stuart Mill, the idea and ideology of Woman's Suffrage gradually developed, as the century wore on, into a coherent ideology in its own right: Feminism. The experience during The First World War, of women working in factories, and other jobs previously reserved for men during peacetime, is often said to have been a crucial pivot point in securing Woman's right to work, vote, and, in other fields of society, achieve legal equality with men.
