Greek women voted for the first time in the municipal elections on February 11, 1934. For a woman to vote, she had to have an elementary school diploma and be more than 30 years old.
Women had to wait until 1956 to elect members of Parliament since the Constitution of 1952 gave them the right to vote in the national, parliamentary elections. In reality, it finally implemented the clause on a catholic vote for everybody that existed in the Constitution of 1864. Eleni Skoura was the first female member of Parliament, an MP for the "Greek Rally."
