Winning the Right to Vote
On June 4th in 1920, women won their long fight to vote after Tennessee became the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment. On The Point, we revisit a conversation with Elaine Weiss about her book The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote. Weiss’s book reveals a complex and fascinating history of women’s rights, and draws parallels between politics today and one hundred years ago.
Elaine Weiss will be speaking Friday February 21, 2020 at 7:30 pm at the Lillie Auditorium in Woods Hole as part of the MBL Falmouth Forum Lecture series.
