Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Commonwealth Franchise Act 1902 was an Act of the Parliament of Australia which defined who was allowed to vote in Australian federal elections. The Act granted Australian women the right to vote at a national level, and to stand for election to the Parliament. The Act meant that Australia was the second country, after New Zealand, to grant women's suffrage at a national level, and the first country to allow women to stand for Parliament. However, the Act also prevented Indigenous Australians, Asian people, African people and Pacific Islanders (except New Zealand Maori) from voting.show more
