Enfranchisement refers to the act of granting rights, such as the right to vote or to receive citizenship. The antonyms for enfranchisement, however, include disenfranchisement, meaning the revocation of rights previously granted. Other antonyms include suppression, repression, and oppression, all of which refer to the restriction or denial of rights. Disinheritance and disqualification are also antonyms for enfranchisement, as they refer to the deprivation of rights to property or participation in certain activities. The opposite of enfranchisement, therefore, is the act of limiting or taking away rights, which has significant consequences for those affected.
