Vote familialiste et vote familial.

Anne Verjus
Abstract : In 1848, the few claims in favor of a family vote indicated a shift was underway in attitudes towards about the political situation of women. These projects — although apparently traditionalist, because they were above all aimed at giving further electoral strength to the pater familias by giving him the voting rights of those in his charge — were nevertheless in line with the long-term history of women's access to suffrage. This is not due to their influence at the time, which was virtually nil, but for what they reveal about the general evolution of mentalities. Thus, by revealing the difference between the former patrimonial conception of suffrage and the new individualist conception, it allows us to understand more fully how, for the first time since the Revolution in 1789, a « woman's issue » which seemed to demand a « solution » was able to emerge at this moment.
