The contribution deals with discriminatory legal provisions women were facing concerning citizenship and nationality. It focuses on the consequences as well as on the influence those factors had on their family situation, on marriage, and their opportunities and expectations in life. It asks for the meaning of women's "incomplete" citizenship and for the connections, amalgamations and intersections with the longtime denial of women's political right in Switzerland. It covers the time between the “Helvetic” (1798) and the present (2015) and shows the consequences of the historical formation for recent developments.
