AbstractThere are many definitions of democracy in political science, but it is interesting to look at the indicators of democracy put forward, which can then be tested by the women condition. In this view, it is said that democratic governance must fulfill three things. First, democratic governance involves competition and the use of force is prohibited. Second, full participation, all citizens have the same right to be appointed and elected in election. No adult citizens are allowed to be marginalized in these political processes. Third, civil and political liberties, civil and politics freedom. Freedom to form organizations, freedom of the press, freedom of expression are some of the important things in building democracy.Even in political science, the understanding of democracy does not automatically provide space for women to participate in politics. Women and slaves in demos-kratos in ancient Greece - which were used as a source of democracy - were not considered citizens. Even women are considered as unfinished creatures. One indicator that distinguishes between citizens and non-citizens in Political Science is the right to vote. The country that first gave women suffrage was Australia. The State of South Australia gave women the right to vote in 1894. Meanwhile, the country that became the reference country as a democratic country was the United States. However, the United States did not grant female citizens the right to vote after 150 years of independence for the United States. In 1920 with the 19th amendment, female citizens of the United States had the right to vote.
