FOREIGN WOMEN |\ Ml MCIPAL
The Swedish Parliament hAs just
voted to make women eligible to
municipal office. The women of
Sweden have had municipal suffrage
for many years, but until now they
have not been permitted to hold office.
In Iceland, Women have had muni-
cipal suffrage for twenty-five years,
and were made eligible to municipal
office five years ago.
Women were given the munclpal
vote In England In 1869, in Scotland
in 1881, and in Ireland in 1898, but
tfyey are not yet eligible to municipal
Several years ago the House of I
Commons voted by a large majority of
172 to 82 to make women eligible as
councillors and aldermen, but the bill
did not get through the House of
Lords. King Edward, in his speech
opening the present Parliament, men-
tioned this as one of the measures that
ought to pass.
In New Zealand, women have had
the full ballot for many years, but
are rarely chosen to municipal office.
In Kansas, they have had the muni-
cipal vote for twenty years, and are
occasionally elected mayors and city
councillors. In Colorado, Wyoming.
I tab and Idaho, where women have
the full ballot, they are of course
eligible to municipal office, and they
are in especial request as city and
town treasurers—perhaps because of
