The BTN I watched recently was about democracy and how it worked in ancient Greece.

Fact 1: Democracy was invented by Greeks so that other countries have a ruler or otherwise there would have been People fighting to be ruler.

Fact 2: The word democracy is made up of two Greek word which are demos=people Kratos=power or rule.

Fact 3: The Greeks were one of the first to experiment with better ways of leading there people.


Understanding 1: I understand that democracy was made for fairness and for everyone to have a say.

Understanding 2: I also understand that in Australia the system works differently for example in Australia everybody that is an Australian citizen can vote.


Question: Why were the women and poor people not allowed to vote.
