It’s an open secret that women are not allowed to vote in Saudi Arabia. However, you may not know that women are also not allowed to vote in Vatican City. The only people who can vote for the pope are cardinals (a job post in Vatican) who, very conveniently cannot be women.
The US didn’t allow female voters till 1920, even after gaining independence in 1776! It took the activists and reformers 100 years of struggle to win this right.
