Why doesn't Vatican City allow women to vote?
Because only Cardinals are allowed to vote in the Vatican. Since the Catholic church only allows men to have leadership positions (and this includes Cardinals) women have no voting rights in the Vatican. If the church ever decided to allow women to hold leadership positions, female Cardinals could vote, but this is not likely to happen any time soon.

Before women could vote, the voters were mostly wealthy white men and land-owners; eventually any white men who were citizens could vote. This was gradually expanded after the… Civil War, to allow black men to vote, but this was more theory than fact in some parts of the country-- while black men could and did vote up north, in the south, many obstacles and barriers were thrown in their way, making it nearly impossible for them to vote. It should also be noted that while many states would not let women vote till the 19th Amendment became law in August 1920, other states did give women some voting rights in state and local elections. Some western states like Wyoming let women vote as far back as the 1870s, and other states like Colorado and Utah gave women voting rights in the 1890s. But women could not vote in federal elections (for president) until 1920.
Yes they are allowed to vote
No. Once the College of Cardinals have convened to elect a pope, they are not allowed to leave the building where they are meeting except in case of a medical emergency, nor a…re they allowed to have outside contact. They have small rooms in which to sleep, and food is supplied.

The only remnants of the military of the Vatican are the SwissGuards who act as body guards for the pope. In earlier years whenthe Vatican was part of the much larger Papal St…ates, the vaticandid have a sizable army. It is highly unlikely anyone would invadethe Vatican these days and, if they did, there are many nationsthat would rise up to protect it.
The only people that can vote for the Pope are Cardinals, and women are not allowed to be Cardinals.
(in the US) Women ARE allowed to vote. WHAT country are you asking about?
Yes of course Muslim women are allowed to vote .Muslim women were given the right to vote years before women in Europe .Women in Britain and other countries had to fight for t…he rights whereas Muslim women were given the right to vote ,right to divorce ,right to her own property ect.
Once the Sistine Chapel is closed for the Conclave, no one is allowed toenter or leave unless it is a dire emergency. Cardinals do leave the Sistine Chapel after the day's ac…tivities have concluded but they simply move to the Casa Santa Marta where they spend the night. However, they can not leave unless it s due to a medical emergency.
Of course, since 1947 women were granted the right to vote in Mexico.
The Vatican allows it, but it's possible that a particular Protestant doctrine might forbid it.
There are very long and detailed rules governing the entire periodin which the Church is without a pope, the complete secrecyrequired for the Conclave involving the seclusion …of the cardinalsis just one of the rules.

About the only voting in Vatican City is when a papal conclave isheld. Only the cardinal electors vote in that.

There is no prohibition against Muslims visiting the Vatican. In addition, there are diplomatic Muslim missions in Vatican as a state. However, in some western countries; i…ncluding the Vatican; they prohibit women from covering their faces. Covering faces using veils is not a requirement per Islamic teachings but is applied in some countries as a matter of local traditions and practices.
In Vatican City
I am pretty sure there are convents ( communities of nuns) within the Vatican,. I am positive there are sisters who work in the Vatican in various capacities ( Linguists, vari…ous types of academic roles, secretarial) but may actually reside elsewhere. Rome is a big city and has over 400 churches- most of one denomination , Roman Catholic. I seem to recall there should be some residential convents within the Vatican ( and possibly cemeteries related to them) but cannot pin it down. and while on the subject of Vatican City- the Sistine Chapel is NOT a convent! Name derives from Pope Sixtus who had it built. Does not refer to ( sisters) . When I was a kid I thought- as there was a Franciscan Friary in Hoboken, well the Sistine Chapel was either a convent or a special chapel reserved for Nuns! Not so.

The religion called Jehovah' Witness tells it's followers no to vote and tells them to believe other things that don't happen to be true about the Bible.
