April 24, 1921

Women voted for the first time today in Belgian elections, and among the women who exercised their franchise was Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians. The Queen voted in Brussels, and stood in line, and waited to "enter the booth to record her vote," reported the Associated Press.
The German-born queen is the consort of King Albert.
