In 1948, Belgium finally introduced universal women's suffrage. This made Belgium the last European country, after Greece and Switzerland, in which women were given a vote. The ladies could not effectively use this vote until the parliamentary elections in June 1949. Earlier, the focus of feminist movements was on general civil rights and equal opportunities in education; in other words the economic emancipation of women. On the political front, one of the main concerns was that women, more than men, would be influenced by their pastor when voting. On the coin itself, you will see the text 'ALGEMEEN VROUWENKIESRECHT SUFFRAGE UNIVERSEL FÉMININ' all around. Inside it, the Venus symbol as a voting box with a red pencil. Next to it: 75 JAAR ANS. Next to it, the country indication BE and the year 2023, below it the mintmaster's mark (an erlenmeyer flask with aster) and the privy mark of the Royal Dutch Mint (the Mercury staff). Bottom right 'IB' the initials of designer Iris Bruijns. The BU version in coincard shows the glee with which the acquired right to vote was announced in the newspapers 75 years ago and also shows women exercising their right to vote.
