Languages of publication
The first step, allowing women to actively participate in political life was to give them the right to vote. The first country, which was made New Zealand at the end of the nineteenth century. Thus, no matter sex. Anyone who has acquired the right to vote can take an active part in political life. The study cited examples of women in the political arena confirm that the role of head of state in Europe has only six women. This is clear evidence that women may have limited access to important political positions. One of the reasons for this situation is the fact that society continues to believe that the woman the position of head of state is not the right person. Another important reason for the lack of women in politics are stereotypes, which are unfortunately very firmly rooted in the thinking of society.
