Women in San Marino are European women who live in or are from the Republic of San Marino. Present-day San Marinese women, or Sammarinese women as they are also called, currently share almost all social and political rights with men in San Marino.[1] San Marino introduced women's suffrage following the 1957 constitutional crisis known as Fatti di Rovereta. San Marinese women received the right to vote in 1960. They received the right to hold political office in 1973.[1] However, in a 1982 referendum, the women of San Marino did not win the right to retain their San Marinese citizenship if they marry male foreigners (19,000 San Marinese voters voted to not abolish the 1928 law that strips San Marinese women of San Marinese citizenship if they marry foreigners); as a result of losing San Marinese citizenship, that woman also loses the right to vote, to work, to own property, to reside in, and to inherit property in the Republic of San Marino.[2]
