Program Chair Sarah Kemp will lead a discussion of The Woman's Hour - The Great Fight to Win the Vote by Elaine Weiss, a dramatic account of the final chapter in the fight to win ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. "In the summer of 1920, one of the pivotal political battles in United States history unfolded in Nashville, Tennessee, as the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote, was on the cusp of victory—or, possibly, defeat. The enfranchisement of half of the citizens of the nation was at stake, and it all came down to Tennessee. The Woman’s Hour details the dramatic climax of the suffragists’ seven-decade struggle for equal citizenship, bringing into focus the powerful forces arrayed against their cause . . . . The Woman’s Hour is more than just a vivid work of history, it is an inspiration for everyone who continues the fight for justice and equal rights today." (From the Penguin Reader's Guide.) The book is available many places, including at the local bookstore, One More Page Books, which has it available in paperback for $18.
