Background: Women voted for the first time in a general election in Switzerland on Saturday (30 October). They were granted the right to vote as the result of a men-only referendum earlier this year, though they had previously voted in some cantonal elections.
This coverage of the first women voting is from the polling booths of Lausanne.
