This Year's Keynote Speaker -- Elaine Weiss

Author, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote


In the summer of 1920, 35 states had ratified the 19th Amendment, 12 had rejected it or refused to vote, and one last state was needed or the amendment might die. After a seven-decade crusade, it all came down to Tennessee; it was the moment of truth for the suffragists, and also for their antagonists, the “Antis.” The political freedom of half of the nation was at stake. In The Woman’s Hour, Elaine Weiss tells the story of nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history — the fight to ratify the constitutional amendment that gave women the right to vote.
