Women got the right to vote at different times in different countries. In the USA, the 19th amendment was passed in 1920, though several states had already given women the right to vote, beginning with Wyoming in 1869. In the UK, women over 30 got the vote in 1918, and women over 21 in 1928. Women in Germany got the vote at about the same time. In France, women got the vote in 1947.

Likewise the right for married women to sue for divorce, and to have custody of their children, and to retain control of their own property, came at different times in different countries, mostly in the late 1800s.

certain occupations were barred to women in the past, though women have always had to work for a living throughout history. The first woman to graduate from a US medical school was Elizabeth Blackwell, in 1850.

Women began going to college in the USA in about 1870, and by 1880 made up about a third of the student population.
