After reading an article, depicting condemning women’s suffrage, written by S. E. Smith, I was profoundly astounded of having the knowledge that, until today, there are still countries totally and partially condemning their women citizens to vote. Many thanks to S. E. Smith for revealing such the enthusiastic political information.
Women’s suffrage was first found by New Zealand, quite a long time ago, since democracy, free-market economy and other liberal and corporate ideologies were hardly heard. Amongst these ideologies, women’s suffrage is one of the most basic human rights in the world. Sadly, until this time: April 18, 2007, women’s suffrage is not yet granted to women in: Brunei and the United Arab Emirates, Vatican city and Saudi Arabia and full women’s suffrage is not yet realized by women in Bhutan and Lebanon.
Despite grave criticisms from international human rights bodies, I hereby proclaim that Cambodia is much better than the six countries listed above: Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, Vatican City and Saudi Arabia, Bhutan and Lebanon; all of these countries are enjoying much better economic stances to Cambodia. However, these six countries have not yet even passed the barbarian human rights state: Offering Women’s Suffrage. Cambodia has realized women’s suffrage since Sihanouk’s administration in the 1950s up to the present.
I am really mentally down with the above fact and with the ignorance of the local, regional and international bodies, stakeholders and individuals concerned.
Last but not least, I hereby appeal to all the national, regional and international institutions, as well as individuals and other stakeholders to make women’s suffrage in: Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, Vatican City and Saudi Arabia, Bhutan and Lebanon become a reality, without anymore delay and delaying reasons.
