Aside from the very obvious reason being that most of our ancestors fought for us to have this right, there are a few we want to shed light on. Why women should vote:

  • Because laws affect women as much as men.
  • Because there are men who are making laws that affect women that are being passed without consulting them.
  • Because over 8 million women in the U.S. are wage workers, and the conditions under which they work are controlled by law.
  • Because women have experience which would be helpful to legislation.
  • Because biologically women are built differently from men, which can bring a new perspective on lawmaking.
  • Because change can happen in numbers, and women have the power to make that change.
  • Because laws regarding children should include the women’s point of view.
  • Because many intelligent, hard-working women desire legislative positions.
  • Because it is for the common good of all.

And more women voting also helps put more women in government. Representation in government really does make a difference.

Thanks for posting.

Totally agree, but is this really still a subject of discussion nowadays?

Next thread: why we shouldn't have slavery any more.

The problem is in most elections the turnout is still way too low. In the last Canadian federal election, the turn out was relatively high compared to the average but it still was only about 65% or so of eligible voters. Turnout was slightly higher for female vs male voters in that election.

In the 2016 US election, there was a similar pattern with 63% of women and 59% of men voting.

Reminding people of why it's important to get out there and do it is important. If you don't, you are basically saying you're okay with letting someone else make decisions for you.
