The Women’s Suffrage
Institutional Affiliation




Women have had a long history of the struggle to maintain an equal stand with men
within the political system. For a long time, the American and European political and voting
systems have had several flaws including long queues in the polling stations, broken electoral
machines, and voter intimidation among other things (Stanton et al., 1889). What takes center
