#wielewatmirsinn - 100 ans de suffrage universel au Luxembourg

Friday, 27 September 2019  -  Saturday, 05 September 2020



2019 marks the centenary of the introduction of universal suffrage in Luxembourg. All adult Luxembourgish women, and over a third of its adult male population, received political rights for the first time. In order to commemorate this historic event, the Chamber of Deputies and the National Museum of History and Art organise a major exhibition dedicated to the changes that, from the 19th century onwards, led to the introduction of universal suffrage in 1919. It also highlights the subsequent revolutionary changes of the political landscape as well as Luxembourg's democratisation process.

The introduction of universal suffrage in 1919 raises many questions that are addressed in the exhibition: Is the constitutional reform an expression of an emancipatory movement? How has universal suffrage fundamentally changed political processes? Why did people start to question the parliamentary system in the 1920's? What broadens citizens' political participation beyond elections? To what extent is the suffrage "universal" today?
