Why were women given voting rights much later than men in most countries? Why did this not happen in India?

NCERT Class 9th: Civics Social Studies (S.St) Ch 1 Democracy in the Contemporary World


Many European countries became democratic by the beginning of the twentieth century but women didn't have voting rights because they were not considered equal. They thought women were not capable of making decisions. They should stay at home, doo household works and look after children. Thus, they were given voting rights much later than men.In India, constitutions makers didn't make any discrimination against women and granted Universal Adult Franchise which gave voting rights to every person  above the age of 18.
