Answer: A. Women were allowed to vote.
Japan became part of the international defense bloc just during World War II. After the war, a constitution restricting Japan from having an armed force and participating in any war was passed in November 1946. After Japan’s surrender, the US took partial control of the region as Japan went through a process of reconstruction.
Finally, in 1946, a model of government depicting the democratic system of the US was adopted to improve economic growth and stability. The first election after the war was held in 1946. During this election, women practiced their franchise for the first time. The results from the election saw the vice president of the Liberal Party, Yoshida Shigeru become the Prime Minister of Japan.
