World War I & the emancipation of women
Women entered professions during the WWI that had previously been reserved solely for men. During the November Revolution of 1918, this was an important argument for women's right to political participation.

On 12 November 1918, the Council of People's Representatives proclaimed universal suffrage from the age of 20, not only for men but also for women!
