Your past update did say that every male (involuntary) has to undergo military service for 15 years (active 5; reserve 10). The civil service demands that women be allowed in the military service (only in non-combat roles) but I assumed this is only voluntary (unlike the forced conscription of the males, which i think is quite good, with the low population that Philippines had, they needed that conscription). An since before the 1850 constitution, the military banned women and so I assumed with the 1850 constitution, the military allowed women into the military, not just forced them.....The 1850 constitution allows female military recruits but they are limited into non combat roles. The Civil service demanded it in that update. There are less female voters due to females not being allowed in military service(with the exception of the Yellow Guards/Amazons) from 1823 to 1850 but by 1850 they would be co equals in number of voters.
Like in Prussia, every male had to serve the army at age of 20. Recruits would serve the army for 5 years and remain with the reserve another 15 years. The regularity, quality of the training and drills would be similar to the Prussian army both standing army and reserve.
If we count the gender distribution of voters, that makes every male technically able to vote and the females fewer by the voluntary female recruitment. and so voters still skewed towards the males.The Civil service representatives, composing of a lot of women civil servants, wants women to vote. The Army and Navy did not recruit females. Andres negotiates by forcing the Army and the navy to open both their branches to female recruits limiting them to non-combat assignments from medical personnel to administration and logistics.
Maybe, I just assumed a lot, the wordings of the sentences were sometimes quite vague hehe (like the military and navy opening their doors to recruit females, it doesn't say anything if the recruitment is voluntary or involuntary. I assumed its voluntary since the military was so against it in the 1st place.)
