So in most countries men had the right to vote whole 10 to 20 years longer than women? What huge disparity that we have to pay for to this day... So what? Switzerland is one of the most misogynistic and least democratic countries in the world?In most countries, full universal suffrage – with the inclusion of women – followed universal male suffrage by about ten to twenty years. Notable exceptions were France, where women could not vote until 1945, Italy (1946), Belgium (1948) and Switzerland (1971).
Is there anything significant?
My question is why aren't they in the kitchen making pies and pot roast?

In fact, quite the opposite is true, imo. Too many special circumstances and situations have been created for special interest groups by government, that it's borderline reverse discrimination.
Private citizens and businesses are free to be bigots, racists, and sexists all they want, within the law, because they have a right to be. We, however, do not have the right not to be offended.
Second, even Women's Suffrage has nothing to do with feminism, political groups who supported it called themselves Suffragettes, and their only concern was - voting for women.
Third, Women's Suffrage was granted BEFORE Universal Suffrage, in most countries that have it.
To make it clear:
There was a time when only rich men could vote.
Then rich women (wives of rich men) were allowed to vote
Then ALL men were allowed to vote.
Then EVERYONE was allowed to vote.

Bad - This is a bad player, he refuses to learn how to play correctly.
Casual - This is a player that will let everything else take priority over wow.
Hardcore - This is a player that is fine with putting things on hold while he's on wow.

Women's Suffrage allowed women to vote but with WEATLH requirement. It was granted before Universal one.
The thing you are thinking of - is Full Universal Suffrage, that allows everyone to vote regardless of anything.
"Most western feminist historians assert that all movements that work to obtain women's rights should be considered feminist movements, even when they did not (or do not) apply the term to themselves"
I call this bs.
