seeking help with a sentence

Beitrag von edmont »

Er hätte die "antisoziale Tat" des Sozialismus geißeln müssen, "für Frauenwahlrecht und Stimmrecht der Unmündigen zu sorgen."

Does the above say:

He would have had to scourge socialism for its "antisocial act" of "providing for women's suffrage and for voting rights for minors."

Thank you for any assistance.

Almost. "Unmündigen" means people who are not allowed to make decisions for themselves. That can potentially include minors but in this context it most likely refers to people who previously had no political voice.
