The Womans Hour


Book Club - The Women's Hour

Wednesday, August 19th at 19:00


August 26, 2020 marks 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage. A century after the passage of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, it’s worth remembering why suffragists had to fight so hard and who was fighting against them, and it’s time to remind ourselves that the work is not yet finished.

The Book Club reopens its season with The Woman's Hour by Elaine Weiss. Thirty-five states have ratified the 19th Amendment, twelve have rejected or refused to vote, and one last state is needed… 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 American Civil War, and the beginning of the great twentieth-century battles for civil rights. (Penguin Random House)

“Stirring, definitive, and engrossing….Weiss brings a lucid, lively, journalistic tone to the story…The Woman's Hour is compulsory reading.” (NPR.org)

“Imaginatively conceived and vividly written, The Woman’s Hour gives us a stirring history of women's long journey to suffrage and to political influence. . . .The Woman’s Hour is an inspiration in the continuing struggles for suffrage, and for race and gender justice, and for democracy. (Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of the New York Times bestseller Eleanor Roosevelt)
