Today is exactly 100 years since the Representation of the People Act gave the vote to women over 30 with property.  At the same time the voting age for men was lowered from 30 to 21.  Here are a couple of articles I found, one by the BBC and one by CNN.  CNN has a comparison graph showing when women got votes in some other countries.  In Saudi Arabia it was as recently as 2015.
