  • Voting rights for everyone? A matter of course today! The goal in the Riksdag is for the gender distribution to be even: just as many women as men. Of course, we have come a long way! But for just 100 years then the fight for equal voting rights was highly relevant and it was thanks to many strong women's fighting spirit that Sweden decided to introduce equal and universal suffrage May 24, 1919. Then Sweden was the last of all the Nordic countries.
