Civics

State whether the following statements are true (T) or false (F).
There was a time when government did not allow women and the poor to participate in elections.


ANSWER

True


SOLUTION
Earlier women were not allowed to participate in elections. They were kept deprived of exercising this civil right. Women have always been considered inferior to man and they were confined to household chores. It was during world wars when women contributed equally to that of men. The potential of women was internationally respected and recognized. The argument that is given against women's suffrage is that it will hinder them in taking care of their family and children if they cast votes and come into power to hold government posts.
