Liechtenstein

With a population of less than 40,000, and an area of just over 160 square kilometres, German-speaking Liechtenstein is one of the smallest nations in the world. It is a semi-constitutional monarchy under the Prince of Liechtenstein and has the dubious distinction of being the last European country to give women the vote. In 1984, Liechtenstein held a referendum on women’s suffrage—in which, obviously, only men were allowed to vote. The motion barely passed, with just 51.3% voting in favour. Three of Liechtenstein’s municipalities resisted giving women the vote in local elections until 1986.
