To commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage in Ohio, award-winning journalist Elaine Weiss will tell the nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. NPR called her book, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, “stirring, definitive, and engrossing…Weiss brings a lucid, lively, journalistic tone to the story…The Woman’s Hour is compulsory reading.”
