According to Wikipedia:

Women's suffrage (the rights to vote) denied or conditioned

* Lebanon - Partial suffrage. Proof of elementary education is required for women but not for men. Voting is compulsory for men but optional for women.

* Brunei - No suffrage for women. Neither men nor women have had the right to vote or to stand for election since 1962 because the country is governed by an absolute monarchy. (see note)

* Saudi Arabia - No suffrage for women. The first local elections ever held in the country occurred in 2005. Women were not given the right to vote or to stand for election. In September 2011, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud stated that women would be allowed to vote and run for office in 2015.

* United Arab Emirates - Limited suffrage for both men and women.

* Vatican City - No suffrage for women; while most men in the Vatican also lack the vote, all persons with suffrage in Papal conclaves (the Cardinals) are male.; width: 67px; height: 24px; margin-left: 25px; position: relative; top: 10px">
