Nazi's view of women's role in society A woman's role in society was to give birth to as many children as she could and look after them as they grew up.
Women's right to vote The women's right to vote was taken away because the Nazis believed that they should be only concerned about the family. Basically it was because the Nazis were very sexist.

Nazi's view of abortion and contraception Nazis did not allow abortions except for medical reasons because the Nazis wanted the women to have as many children as possible and to stay at home to look after the family. They did not want women to stop themselves from having children.
Nazi's view of an ideal family Husband and Wife that had had many children, was the Nazi's view of an ideal family.
