Women's History

Hi... I am a University student from Taiwan, and I chose a course which is call Traveler's English. And I have few question to ask you.

(1) Which was the world's first nation to grant women the right to vote and when was it?
(2) How about the last Western country to grant women the right to vote and when?
(3) There is one single word in English to describe the women's right to vote, what is it ?

Thanks for your help!

With love, Vincent
