In The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote award Winning journalist Elaine Weiss tells the story of how suffragists, anti-suffragists, lobbyists, and lawmakers descended on Nashville in 1920 in a fight to make Tennessee the final state to ratify the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote. As is clear from Weiss’ page-turning prose, no one gave women the right to vote–they fought like hell for it.
