History post today.
75 years ago began a new republican democracy in Spain. (Republican, as in "no king". Politically it'd be safe to say they stood to the left of today's US Democrats.) 75 years ago, women had the right to vote for the first time. They lost that right, along with everyone else, during the fascist dictatorship that was to follow a coup (1936) and a three year civil war. That dictatorship lasted almost 40 years.
That democratic 2nd Republic would've been 75 years old today.
Update: corrected the post to leave out the elections 'till June (didn't make it harsher on monarchs, though 😉 ). Also changed the tag to something that makes sense. You'd have thought I'd keep my head on at all times *shakes head*.
