Today in World History: November 28th

Women’s rights progressed slowly in the 1800s and faster in the 1900s. New Zealand was ahead of its time though, in becoming the first country to let women vote in 1893. This led to the spread of women’s suffrage movements around the world, allowing women to vote in Europe and North America, and eventually the allowance of women to be admitted into universities and train to become doctors or scientists.

“Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow’s reality.”
