    IIRC some regional political entities were even earlier than NZ, but they don’t count because they still aren’t independent today.

    Finland was the first currently-independent state to grant women both voting and political office rights (1906, effective 1907). These details may cause some misunderstandings if you discuss this issue with Finns.
