The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote

The nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political victories in American history: the down and dirty campaign to get the last state to ratify the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote."Anyone interested in the history of our country's ongoing fight to put its founding values into practice--as well as those seeking the roots of current political fault lines--would be well-served by picking up The Woman's Hour." --Margot Lee Shetterly, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Hidden FiguresNashville, August 1920. Thirty-five states have ratified the Nineteenth Amendment, twelve have rejected or refused to vote, and one last state is needed. It all comes down to Tennessee, the moment of truth for the suffragists, after a seven-decade crusade. The opposing forces include politicians with careers at stake, liquor companies, railroad magnates, and a lot of racists who don't want black women voting. And then there are the 'Antis'--women who oppose their own enfranchisement, fearing suffrage will bring about the moral collapse of the nation. They all converge in a boiling hot summer for a vicious face-off replete with dirty tricks, betrayals and bribes, bigotry, Jack Daniel's, and the Bible.Following a handful of remarkable women who led their respective forces into battle, along with appearances by Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Frederick Douglass, and Eleanor Roosevelt, The Woman's Hour is an inspiring story of activists winning their own freedom in 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....

The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote Reviews

  • Linh

    This is truly excellent. I will never again believe that women were "given" the vote. They fought tooth and nail to get the enfranchisement. This is something that every woman should read.

  • Leslie Goddard

    From the cover, you'd never know this was a book about the battle for final ratification of the 19th amendment in Tennessee. That was my first big turn-off. It always turns me off when book publishers are not entirely clear about a book's actual theme in the title.

    Still, it’s a great topic. Women’s suffrage still isn’t as widely recognized and written about for the public as it ought to be. However, reading the book, I felt a lot of deja vu. It seemed like I was just reading the same stories --

  • Chris Jaffe

    This is a really good book about the ratification of the 19th Amendment. It's not an exhaustive history of the movement from Seneca Falls in 1848 until final success in 1920. Instead, it's focus is much more narrow: the fight for the 36th state: Tennessee. Without Tennessee, they couldn't get the amendment ratified, and it was one closely fought battle. (Note: the book does cover some of the previous decades in overviews here and there - but this is a book on the fight for a 36th state.

    A comprehensive telling of the political battle of Tennessee's ratification of the 19th amendment. The book immediately pushes back against today's perspective that ratification was inevitable; while 35 of the needed 36 states had already ratified, momentum had stalled and most of the remaining states were in the south where opposition was strong. Tennessee was seen as the most likely of the remaining states to ratify, a ratification defeat in Tennessee would have further stalled momentum and th ...more

    404 pages. I read 22 pages (1 chapter) and could not go further. I tried reading this many days but never seemed to get very far. I finally decided I was going to at least finish the first chapter tonight. Even though I am sure the author did a great job of sharing all the numerous details of the suffrage movement, I really could not get into it due to the writing style. It seems like she is all over the place, dropping names, places, events, etc. all over the first chapter. I just could not get ...more

    It is the battleground of Memphis, Tennessee in August 1920 where Carrie Catt and Alice Paul, suffragettes, stand toe-to-toe with Josephine Pearson, an anti-suffragette. The fight for the 19th Amendment comes down to one more needed state to ratify, giving the vote to women in America. It is an election year and Tennessee governor Albert Roberts wants to make sure he is re-elected. His stance on the "Susan B. Anthony Amendment" could make or break his campaign. In the hopes that the "woman vote" ...more

    It took 71 years and generations of women (and some men) to gain the vote for women in the U.S. through ratification of the 19th amendment to the Constitution—from the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, where the convention-approved Declaration of Sentiments first put the issue in the political arena, until 1920, when a constitutional amendment finally gained ratification by the states.

    While today it might seem inconceivable that women could be prevented from voting, passage of the amendment was n

    I learned so much as I read through this great novel. There was just so much I didn't know about the suffrage movement. My only complaint was the organization of the novel often left me confused about the people I was reading about.
