Booktalk: Elaine Weiss’s “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote”

Elaine Weiss’s The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote is the true story of the suffragettes. These are the female leaders who—in the face of enormous opposition—fought for and won American women’s right to vote in 1920.
