What is the term given to the women's right to vote? In earlier days, why this right was denied and how did women get it?


SOLUTION
Women Suffrage is the term given to women's right to vote. Women were considered inferior to men both physically and mentally. They were considered unfit to cast votes and it was considered that married woman's existence was incorporated into that of her husband. 
It was argued that voting would distract women from their roles as mothers and wives. On the onset of !800s, women fought for broad based economic and political equality. national and International efforts were coordinated to gain voting rights and with women's contribution to the war changed the notion that women cannot be equal to men. Initially women got limited voting rights but eventually the women suffrage became universal phenomena.
