Who was allowed to vote in the developing democracy in Athens?
Under the Cleisthenes reforms of 507 BCE property owners who had a battle equipage (a panoply of arms). This was suspended during and after the Persian invasion, when the oligarchs took control again. It was restored in 460 BCE by Ephialtes, then after his assassination by the oligarchs, his deputy Pericles took over and eventually extended it to all adult males who were citizens.
All the citizens could take part in making decisions for the polis.
Men were and women weren't

In Ancient Athens, they did not allow women and slaves to vote. But in the U.S, all the citizens (over 18 of course) have the right to vote. the democracy that we are provided in the USA is what's called representative Democracy. in Athens it was much less representative and considerably more hands-on... sort of "hey, let's just vote on that law" kinda thing.

The idea of democracy started in Athens, Greece in about 400-300 BC. The citizens of Greece were aloud to vote for their leaders and laws; much like the United States current democracy. The only catch is only men were considered citizens. That means women, children, and slaves did not get to vote.
