What was the woman suffrage about?
"Suffrage" refers to the right to vote; "women's suffrage" is the right to vote as it applies to women. Most countries in the past (some still in the present) had clear divisions in sex; therefore, women were not granted the right to vote. Through activists and reformers, most countries enfranchised women.
