In 1955 Maurice Duverger published The Political Role of Women, the first behavioralist, multinational comparison of women's electoral participation ever to use election data and survey data together. His study analyzed women's patterns of voting, political candidacy, and political activism in four European countries during the first half of the twentieth century. Duverger's research findings were that women voted somewhat less frequently than men (the difference narrowing the longer women had the vote) and were slightly more conservative.Duverger's work set an early standard for the sensitive analysis of women's electoral activities.Moreover, to Duverger's credit, he placed his findings in the context of many of the historical processes that had shaped these activities.However, since these contexts have changed over time, Duverger's approach has proved more durable than his actual findings. In addition, Duverger's discussion of his findings was hampered by his failure to consider certain specific factors important to women's electoral participation at the time he collected his data: the influence of political regimes, the effects of economic factors, and the ramifications of political and social relations between women and men. Given this failure, Duverger's study foreshadowed the enduring limitations of the behavioralist approach to the multinational study of women's political participation.

Duverger's research findings were that women voted somewhat less frequently than men (the difference narrowing the longer women had the vote) and were slightly more conservative.括号里的句子有倒装和省略
Duverger's research findings were that women voted somewhat less frequently than men (the difference narrowing the longer women had the vote) and were slightly more conservative. Duverger的研究结果是，女性投票的频率略低于男性（女性投票时间越长，差异就越小），而且稍微保守一些。
the longer the women had vote, the narrower the difference will be 即女性得到投票权的时间越长，差距越小 反过来，女性获得投票权时间越短，差距就越大
正常语序应该是：the longer women had the vote，the difference narrowing 。 翻译过来：女人获得投票权的时间越长，这个difference between men and women in voting，这个差距就在narrowing=差别减少。 题目问的是：most different=差别最大→女人获得投票的时间最短 一定要记得看括号内的内容+虚拟语气
