Marguerite Thomas-Clément

Luxembourg

A voice for women in Parliament

Even before the introduction of universal suffrage in Luxembourg in 1919, Marguerite Thomas-Clément was a strong advocate for a woman’s right to vote. First elected woman in parliament, for a decade, she has been fervently defending the cause of all women, especially the poorest, including under-paid workers or imprisoned prostitutes.
