I've been very much looking forwad to traveling to Switzerland in the Spring of 2008. Besides its natural beauty, I've always heard about how progressive and forward-looking the Swiss are....but I just found out that Swiss women did not get the vote until 1971!! Is this possible? Do I want to go to a country with such an entrenched patriarchal outlook? I'm so hoping "1971" was a typo in the book I read! Are there any posters out there who have been there and can give me the lowdown? Thanks.
