No! It can't be so! Thirty-three years late! Tch, tch, tch.

Thanks for the research. By the way, here is some of my own:

Nation Population in 1893

New Zealand .7 million
Australia 3 million
Finland 3 million
U.S. 70 bloody million

Hmm. I wonder if that makes any difference.

Let's see. Speaking of industrialized nations (not that
New Zealand, Australia, and Finland weren't industrialized)
when did

Germany 40 million
France 40 million
U.K. 30 million

get women suffrage? Happen to have those figures handy too?
