    It's one thing to get the vote, it's another to be allowed to use it.

    A step in the right direction though!

    It will be interesting to see the results, given that they might even get elected to a municipal council, but because other laws have not changed, will have to be chaperoned whilst there. They're not quite up with it. In time, one hopes for their sake, that all of it changes, including getting rid of that ridiculous and marginalising burkah.

    Unfortunately that country isn't the only one where women are downtrodden! to lower than cows.
