Women didn’t get the vote at the same age as men in the UK until 1928.

Women granted the vote in 1918 had to be 30 ( men 21) and had to own property

Definitely the hardest one of the three I've seen so far. I still would have passed it, though (had I been living in the UK for 5 years). Some questions are extremely easy for everyone who's familiar with western european culture, while others seem very specific for no reason. Interesting!
