That's good news. Although, the article brings up some stats among young Poles: "Among men aged 18-30, 62% said they supported nationalist, populist or far-right parties and 33% backed liberal or leftwing ones. Among women, 55% supported liberal or leftwing parties and 43% were in favour of the nationalists."

Not a gigantic difference, but if only either of the sexes were to vote, it would tip the scale in opposite directions.

Even in the case of Hungary, I can imagine the slight female numerical advantage among voters for Fidesz can be explained by men voting for even more staunch Nationalist parties, like Jobbik.

I am well aware that people internalize the self-image they project outwardly, but the question was whether or not people (or women, specifically) risk anything by going against this at the ballot box. They don't.

So it basically boils down to: women shouldn't have the vote, but it's all men's fault for giving them the vote in the first place.

I, at least, have never stated that. Men have failed in a variety of different ways.

I'm not sure I understand your point. "Women vote for stability, even if it doesn't lead to stability"..?
