Summary The Woman's Hour

The Woman's Hour Read Ø 104 Y Jack Daniel's and the BibleFollowing 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 year is 1920 Every state but two has voted on the 19th Amendment The two states remaining are Tennessee and North Carolina There is no uestion that the issue of women voting in NC is dead on arrival so all eyes are on TNThe year is 1920 It is a presidential election year and the issue before the country is will it drastically change the face of the electorate 10 weeks before a presidential election Imagine debating an amendment that changed the voting age or allowed illegal immigrants to vote weeks before the vote Tennessee s decision literally decides who the next presidentThe issue is not just women s rights it is state s rights Ratification will force states opposed to suffrage almost all of the former Confederate States to allow to let women voteThe timing is crucial The Amendment passed in Congress in 1919 in part because of the role women played during WW I and the Spanish Flu If it fails then it might be another generation before the Susan B Anthony Amendment has a chance of passingThe issue is bigger than women s rights Women include black women What role does racism play in the passage or resistance to passage of the Amendment Is the country ready to let black women voteThe 1870 Tennessee Constitution forbade the legislation from considering a federal Amendment until after the November election but the Supreme Court ruled the US Constitution overrode this Still the state legislators could approve reject or delay ratificationElaine Weiss s book is fascinating the twists and turns in the book She tells the story in such a captivating way One of the most surprising aspects of the book is that prior to the section dealing with the debate on the Tennessee Legislative Floor was that most of the Suffs and Antis were women Let me just highlight one section Weiss presents a story When you finish the story the 19th Amendment looks dead in the water One Tennessee legislature however declares that unless divine intervention occurs the amendment is going to pass What did he know How did he know itAnother story involves a Tennessee state senator Herschel Kandler who makes such a pathetic speech that he antagonized everybody He accuses the legislatures of being in a petticoat government eg beholden to women Virtually everybody blasts this man But one senator points out that Kandler is so out of touch with reality that he doesn t realize women no longer wear petticoatsThis is one of those rare books that I couldn t put down I was up until 330am finishing it This is the first of several books that I m reading in preparation for the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment this sets a very high bar for the subject A very strong 5 star review

The Woman's Hour Read Ø 104 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 voteNashville 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 sev. After thinking about this book overnight I ve changed my rating to five stars When an author can take a book where we already know the outcome but can make it not only interesting but thrilling and heartfelt it can Garner no less Plus I listened to this and the narrator Tania Gilbert was brilliant as wellA book I truly believe every women should read They will come away with a deep appreciation to the effort and pain that went into our having the right to vote Yes there are many names within hard to keep track of but you will come to know the key motivators uite well These women were indefatigable in their fight many were jailed force fed and made to endure other indignities Some were I ll with underlying conditions and yet on they fought I was surprised by the amount of women who were anti suffragettes found their reasons interesting even somewhat credible looking back on it from today But it is clear the right to vote is a privilege and one hard earned and should not be neglected with mundane excuses According to the other since the eighties women than men have excercisd this right and I can only hope that this continues and multipliesI learned so much history from this book and at times such as when Katt goes to the White House to thank President Wilson for his support and finds after his stroke a wreck of a man I actually got teary eyed Despite this being non fiction I found this to be a very emotional book What an admirable struggle the rights for women which still today has a way to go

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review The Woman s Hour The Great Fight to Win the Vote by Elaine F Weiss follows a handful of brave women who fought for the right to vote with cameos from Woodrow Wilson Warren G Harding Frederick Douglass and Eleanor Roosevelt The narrative presented primarily takes place in Nashville August 1920 By this time only one state is reuired for ratification of the nineteenth amendment and everything falls on Tennessee The opposition features politicians with careers at stake liuor companies railroad magnates and racists who don t want black women voting There are also the Antis women who fear that their own enfranchisement will cause the moral collapse of the United States All of these elements come together to face off in Nashville replete with dirty tricks betrayals and bribes bigotry Jack Daniel s and the BibleThis history book by Elaine F Weiss is easily one of the most readable and comprehensive books on the women s suffrage movement focusing on ratification and Tennessee that I have ever had the opportunity to read I ve been reading uite a bit lately about that time period and women s suffrage but this is hands down the most informative when it comes to such a key moment in history The author also does a fantastic job of integrating history of the movement into the primary as well I for one particularly enjoyed seeing Victoria Woodhull s name get brought up since she s so often left out I m glad that people are really beginning to learn about her life The author also does a great job of starkly laying out all of the movement s detractors so matter of factly detailing their means methods and motivations for being on the other side of history Finally I d also like to mention that Weiss also does a brilliant job of making her history book feel incredibly timely Of course the main events in the book take place 98 years ago but she still does a fantastic job of making their battle feel like fresh and currentOverall I highly recommend this new non fiction book from Elaine F Weiss all about everything finally coming together after a decades long struggle for women to cast their ballots Every page of this inspiring 400 page tome is inspiring and well worth your time I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for future projects from this author
