    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 G...

    Being a history enthusiast and coming from a maternal line of political junkies, the dates 1848 and 1920 were entrenched in my brain from an early age. The years that American women first organized at Seneca Falls, New York and then won the right to vote seventy years later are milesto...

    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 Elean...

    The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote is a comprehensive and meticulously researched study of the fight for the women's vote across the nation but focusing on the fight for the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in Tennessee, the thirty-sixth state that would bring vo...

    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....

    The start of this book thrilled me. We see imagery of the Union Station in Nashville. 1. Mercury alight on the steeple of Union Station. Weiss notes this Mercury depiction as Mrs Catt of NAWSA enters Nashville on the train. Apparently Weiss likens Mrs Catt to a divine messenger. 2. ...

    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. ...

    This book was a suffrage thriller! It's about the fight to get Tennessee to ratify the 19th amendment and it's a fascinating read. It's also super revelatory about the debates today. Here are a few takeaways and thoughts: 1. The anti-suffrage women--these are today's conservative w...

    I finished listening to this two days ago, and still an anger lingers. I'm angry that I'm a Tennessean and history minor in undergrad, yet I didn't know how integral TN was in women's suffrage until last year. Arguably, the most important contribution TN made to the US was to be the 36...

    I received this from netgalley.com in exchange for a review. Wow, every time we walk into a polling booth we should be remembering these ladies and the battle they fought for our right to vote! 4? ...

    Elaine Weiss does a commendable job of writing about the last big battle before the ratification granting women the right to vote. The book reads like fiction and definitely helped me better understand both the Suffragettes and the "Antis'. There were so many different issues and playe...

    There are key figures in the battle to ratify the nineteenth amendment that I didn?t know about until reading this book. There is a lot of history to this one and it gave me a new appreciation for the women that fought societal norms to pave the road to suffrage. It wasn?t easy....

    Highlighting the power of women's fight for equality in a single summer, this brilliant and timely narrative nonfiction is a wake up call. By looking back on our struggles, can we truly understand hidden and undervalued lessons gained that we take for granted today. Weiss' voic...

    Fabulous book. Solid 5 star. The Woman?s Hour is a history book that reads like a thriller. It is about the climax of US suffrage movement, the final state?s ratification of the 19th Amendment of US. We all know the battle was won, but I did not know the fight so hard and th...

    Tennessee was the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. It succeeded by the slimmest of margins. This is the story of that historic vote and the activists on both sides of the issue. Accessible, engaging, exciting, this is an example of popular histor...

    If we taught history like this book writes it, every student would want to study for a PhD. The Woman's Hour was riveting from the first page to the last. In 1920, the vote to ratify the 19th amendment and give women the right to vote was up in the Tennessee legislature. 35 states had ...

    A fantastic work of narrative nonfiction that offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for Tennessee to ratify suffrage and how this led to women having the right to vote across the U.S. Sadly, many of the issues being discussed 100 years ago are still relevant today. Thankfu...

    This was really interesting. I'll admit I got a bit bogged down with all the political recountings, even though I knew there would be a lot. Towards the end they got interesting though - those last votes...! I found it really interesting how much of what went on then is like what's goi...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Viking for an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review. Typically, anything non-fiction is not my jam BUT I kept hearing about this book and considering the plight of US women in 2017 I thought it was fitting to read it (and during Women?s Histo...

    Really important history. Definitely worth reading. It's about the last state to ratify the 19th amendment and the battle between the suffragettes and the anti-suffragettes in Tennessee but also all the outside actors who influence it. It also gives good little snippets of suffragist h...

    The amount of detail in this review of the final ratification of the 19th Amendment is almost mind boggling and the extensive Notes and Bibliography stand as proof of the amount of work this title required. At times it's almost a minute-by-minute, play-by-play look at the struggle betw...

    As I was reading this book, I kept scratching my head. I know as a woman I can vote -- I did so a few weeks ago -- but the way this book is written, I wasn't sure Tennessee was actually going to put us over the finish line. (Quite frankly, none of the other participants who were there ...

    This great book tells the story of how it all came down to Tennessee to be the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment, giving women the vote. And even though we know how it turned out, the book reads like a thriller in places, as though everything were, once again, on the line. So ter...

    WOW! What a phenomenal book. Elaine Weiss crafted a masterful page-turner that explores the events leading up to Tennessee?s ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. Though focused on that specific event and time, she creatively gives enough of a broad scope of the suffrage question...

    I believe I will think back on this book and the hundreds of women who gave much, and sometimes everything, every time I enter a voting booth. In just a short time, I am amazed that these women and their decades-long fight for the right to vote is something I have never really heard mu...

    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 G...

    Being a history enthusiast and coming from a maternal line of political junkies, the dates 1848 and 1920 were entrenched in my brain from an early age. The years that American women first organized at Seneca Falls, New York and then won the right to vote seventy years later are milesto...

    Audiobook.. read by Elaine Weiss, and Tavia Gilbert Joining the spirit of women?s history month... I chose this book. Thank you to my friends who read it before me - Diane?s review.... saying she believed ?all women should read this book?, inspired me. I?m sure glad I did...

    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 Elean...

    The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote is a comprehensive and meticulously researched study of the fight for the women's vote across the nation but focusing on the fight for the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in Tennessee, the thirty-sixth state that would bring vo...

    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....

    The start of this book thrilled me. We see imagery of the Union Station in Nashville. 1. Mercury alight on the steeple of Union Station. Weiss notes this Mercury depiction as Mrs Catt of NAWSA enters Nashville on the train. Apparently Weiss likens Mrs Catt to a divine messenger. 2. ...

    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. ...

    This book was a suffrage thriller! It's about the fight to get Tennessee to ratify the 19th amendment and it's a fascinating read. It's also super revelatory about the debates today. Here are a few takeaways and thoughts: 1. The anti-suffrage women--these are today's conservative w...

    I finished listening to this two days ago, and still an anger lingers. I'm angry that I'm a Tennessean and history minor in undergrad, yet I didn't know how integral TN was in women's suffrage until last year. Arguably, the most important contribution TN made to the US was to be the 36...

    I received this from netgalley.com in exchange for a review. Wow, every time we walk into a polling booth we should be remembering these ladies and the battle they fought for our right to vote! 4? ...

    Elaine Weiss does a commendable job of writing about the last big battle before the ratification granting women the right to vote. The book reads like fiction and definitely helped me better understand both the Suffragettes and the "Antis'. There were so many different issues and playe...

    There are key figures in the battle to ratify the nineteenth amendment that I didn?t know about until reading this book. There is a lot of history to this one and it gave me a new appreciation for the women that fought societal norms to pave the road to suffrage. It wasn?t easy....

    Highlighting the power of women's fight for equality in a single summer, this brilliant and timely narrative nonfiction is a wake up call. By looking back on our struggles, can we truly understand hidden and undervalued lessons gained that we take for granted today. Weiss' voic...

    Fabulous book. Solid 5 star. The Woman?s Hour is a history book that reads like a thriller. It is about the climax of US suffrage movement, the final state?s ratification of the 19th Amendment of US. We all know the battle was won, but I did not know the fight so hard and th...

    Tennessee was the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. It succeeded by the slimmest of margins. This is the story of that historic vote and the activists on both sides of the issue. Accessible, engaging, exciting, this is an example of popular histor...

    A fantastic work of narrative nonfiction that offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for Tennessee to ratify suffrage and how this led to women having the right to vote across the U.S. Sadly, many of the issues being discussed 100 years ago are still relevant today. Thankfu...

    This was really interesting. I'll admit I got a bit bogged down with all the political recountings, even though I knew there would be a lot. Towards the end they got interesting though - those last votes...! I found it really interesting how much of what went on then is like what's goi...

    Really important history. Definitely worth reading. It's about the last state to ratify the 19th amendment and the battle between the suffragettes and the anti-suffragettes in Tennessee but also all the outside actors who influence it. It also gives good little snippets of suffragist h...

    The amount of detail in this review of the final ratification of the 19th Amendment is almost mind boggling and the extensive Notes and Bibliography stand as proof of the amount of work this title required. At times it's almost a minute-by-minute, play-by-play look at the struggle betw...

    As I was reading this book, I kept scratching my head. I know as a woman I can vote -- I did so a few weeks ago -- but the way this book is written, I wasn't sure Tennessee was actually going to put us over the finish line. (Quite frankly, none of the other participants who were there ...

    This great book tells the story of how it all came down to Tennessee to be the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment, giving women the vote. And even though we know how it turned out, the book reads like a thriller in places, as though everything were, once again, on the line. So ter...

    Really important history. Definitely worth reading. It's about the last state to ratify the 19th amendment and the battle between the suffragettes and the anti-suffragettes in Tennessee but also all the outside actors who influence it. It also gives good little snippets of suffragist h...

    Being a history enthusiast and coming from a maternal line of political junkies, the dates 1848 and 1920 were entrenched in my brain from an early age. The years that American women first organized at Seneca Falls, New York and then won the right to vote seventy years later are milesto...

    Audiobook.. read by Elaine Weiss, and Tavia Gilbert Joining the spirit of women?s history month... I chose this book. Thank you to my friends who read it before me - Diane?s review.... saying she believed ?all women should read this book?, inspired me. I?m sure glad I did...

    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 Elean...

    The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote is a comprehensive and meticulously researched study of the fight for the women's vote across the nation but focusing on the fight for the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in Tennessee, the thirty-sixth state that would bring vo...

    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....

    The start of this book thrilled me. We see imagery of the Union Station in Nashville. 1. Mercury alight on the steeple of Union Station. Weiss notes this Mercury depiction as Mrs Catt of NAWSA enters Nashville on the train. Apparently Weiss likens Mrs Catt to a divine messenger. 2. ...

    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. ...

    This book was a suffrage thriller! It's about the fight to get Tennessee to ratify the 19th amendment and it's a fascinating read. It's also super revelatory about the debates today. Here are a few takeaways and thoughts: 1. The anti-suffrage women--these are today's conservative w...

    I finished listening to this two days ago, and still an anger lingers. I'm angry that I'm a Tennessean and history minor in undergrad, yet I didn't know how integral TN was in women's suffrage until last year. Arguably, the most important contribution TN made to the US was to be the 36...

    Highlighting the power of women's fight for equality in a single summer, this brilliant and timely narrative nonfiction is a wake up call. By looking back on our struggles, can we truly understand hidden and undervalued lessons gained that we take for granted today. Weiss' voic...

    Fabulous book. Solid 5 star. The Woman?s Hour is a history book that reads like a thriller. It is about the climax of US suffrage movement, the final state?s ratification of the 19th Amendment of US. We all know the battle was won, but I did not know the fight so hard and th...

    Tennessee was the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. It succeeded by the slimmest of margins. This is the story of that historic vote and the activists on both sides of the issue. Accessible, engaging, exciting, this is an example of popular histor...

    If we taught history like this book writes it, every student would want to study for a PhD. The Woman's Hour was riveting from the first page to the last. In 1920, the vote to ratify the 19th amendment and give women the right to vote was up in the Tennessee legislature. 35 states had ...

    A fantastic work of narrative nonfiction that offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for Tennessee to ratify suffrage and how this led to women having the right to vote across the U.S. Sadly, many of the issues being discussed 100 years ago are still relevant today. Thankfu...

    This was really interesting. I'll admit I got a bit bogged down with all the political recountings, even though I knew there would be a lot. Towards the end they got interesting though - those last votes...! I found it really interesting how much of what went on then is like what's goi...

    Excellent, well-written and researched. The final push to ratify the 19th amendment to the US Constitution was a tense and exciting event. It's easy to think that it was a foregone conclusion after passing in Congress, but that was far from the case. Weiss writes in a way that bring th...

    Fabulous book. Solid 5 star. The Woman?s Hour is a history book that reads like a thriller. It is about the climax of US suffrage movement, the final state?s ratification of the 19th Amendment of US. We all know the battle was won, but I did not know the fight so hard and th...

    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....

    The start of this book thrilled me. We see imagery of the Union Station in Nashville. 1. Mercury alight on the steeple of Union Station. Weiss notes this Mercury depiction as Mrs Catt of NAWSA enters Nashville on the train. Apparently Weiss likens Mrs Catt to a divine messenger. 2. ...

    Tennessee was the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. It succeeded by the slimmest of margins. This is the story of that historic vote and the activists on both sides of the issue. Accessible, engaging, exciting, this is an example of popular histor...

    If we taught history like this book writes it, every student would want to study for a PhD. The Woman's Hour was riveting from the first page to the last. In 1920, the vote to ratify the 19th amendment and give women the right to vote was up in the Tennessee legislature. 35 states had ...

    A fantastic work of narrative nonfiction that offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for Tennessee to ratify suffrage and how this led to women having the right to vote across the U.S. Sadly, many of the issues being discussed 100 years ago are still relevant today. Thankfu...

    This was really interesting. I'll admit I got a bit bogged down with all the political recountings, even though I knew there would be a lot. Towards the end they got interesting though - those last votes...! I found it really interesting how much of what went on then is like what's goi...

    Excellent, well-written and researched. The final push to ratify the 19th amendment to the US Constitution was a tense and exciting event. It's easy to think that it was a foregone conclusion after passing in Congress, but that was far from the case. Weiss writes in a way that bring th...

    Really important history. Definitely worth reading. It's about the last state to ratify the 19th amendment and the battle between the suffragettes and the anti-suffragettes in Tennessee but also all the outside actors who influence it. It also gives good little snippets of suffragist h...

    The amount of detail in this review of the final ratification of the 19th Amendment is almost mind boggling and the extensive Notes and Bibliography stand as proof of the amount of work this title required. At times it's almost a minute-by-minute, play-by-play look at the struggle betw...

    As I was reading this book, I kept scratching my head. I know as a woman I can vote -- I did so a few weeks ago -- but the way this book is written, I wasn't sure Tennessee was actually going to put us over the finish line. (Quite frankly, none of the other participants who were there ...

    This great book tells the story of how it all came down to Tennessee to be the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment, giving women the vote. And even though we know how it turned out, the book reads like a thriller in places, as though everything were, once again, on the line. So ter...
