Until relatively recently, in most jurisdictions men and women were not equal for the law. This included the legal position of women and women’s suffrage. In several countries, especially in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US), a link was made between women being taxed, but not allowed to vote and the doctrine of no taxation without representation. This link between taxation and democracy is discussed in this chapter.
