B.T.N – What is democracy?

This B.T.N article was about how the Ancient Greeks invented democracy and how it developed over the years. The main people in Ancient Greece wanted to fight when they were thretened but lots of other people didn’t, so the Greeks came up with something called democracy, made up of 2 Greek words: demos meaning people, and kratos meaning rule, but back then, women, slaves or poor people couldn’t vote.

I understood how the democracy died out when monarchy came into fashion. I wonder why they didn’t let women or poor people vote? I also wonder when most countries stopped absolute monarchy.
