2018 marks the centenary of the adoption of women’s suffrage in Austria. On 12 November 1918 women were granted the right to vote and to stand for election. It was only with the adoption of voting rights for women that their exclusion from political decisions came to an end. In 1919 they were able to vote for the first time on equal terms with men.
