Description

Nashville, August 1920. Thirty-five states have ratified the Nineteenth Amendment, twelve have rejected or refused to vote. One last state is needed. After a seven-decade suffragist crusade, it all comes down to Tennessee. Following the remarkable women who led their forces into battle, The Woman's Hour is an inspiring story of activists winning one of the last campaigns forged in the shadow of the Civil War, and the beginning of the great twentieth-century battles for civil rights.

Description
Nashville, August 1920. The Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution, granting all women the vote, is on the verge of ratification -- or defeat. Out of the thirty-six states needed, thirty-five have approved it, and one last state is still in play -- Tennessee. After a seven-decade crusade to win the ballot, this is the moment of truth for the suffragists, and Nashville becomes a frenzied battleground as the enormous forces allied for and against women's suffrage make their last stand. Elaine Weiss recasts the saga of women's quest for the vote by focusing on the campaign's last six weeks, when it all came down to one ambivalent state.
