After a 4h hike from Wasserauen up to the Ebenalp, one is rewarded with a breathtaking view over the rolling hills of the Appenzeller land towards the lake of Constanze and Germany on the opposite shore.
With a population of a mere 15'000, the canton Appenzell is the least populated canton in Switzerland and one of the most conservative too. It was in 1990 only that the Swiss gouvernement finally overruled a voting by the Landsgemeinde (an assembly of every male citizen in the town square to vote on any pending issue by holding ones hand aloof) and granted women the right to vote also. The Landsgemeinde still exists today even if women are participating now .....! Being married to a Finnish women, where women where granted the right to vote in 1906, you can imagine how strange that was to me.

Hello Daniel, Such a fine view from very sexist area:). Poland granted women the right to vote and be elected, without any restrictions in 1918. Already in 1919 first 8 women were elected to the Sejm (Polish parliament). Now we have a oman as Marshall of Sejm.
Brunei, Liban and Saudi Arabian still have no right to vote.
breath taking panorama with these green hills dotted with small villages. .

Beautifully captured image...
I might be wrong, it could be my screen, but from my screen I sense it could be like this. See if it looks right on your screen.

Lovely rolling hills covered with wonderfully green grass. There are so many details that it makes me want to enlarge the photo and look at each cluster of houses separately.
