Until 1988, a woman was practically at the mercy of her husband
Let us also mention that until 1988, according to Swiss matrimonial law, the husband was the head of the family, which gave him the right to manage the couple's assets as he wished and even to
forbid his wife (or daughter) to work outside the home.
In Switzerland, women also had to wait a long time to obtain
the right to vote. Today, fortunately, it is different because
women are found almost everywhere. Girls attend higher education,
vote in elections as adults and are also
increasingly represented in the management of companies.
