Elaine Weiss at the Hudson Library

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.”

Weiss is an award-winning journalist and writer whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, Harper'sThe New York Times, and The Christian Science Monitor, as well as in reports and documentaries for National Public Radio and Voice of America. A MacDowell Colony Fellow and Pushcart Prize Editor's Choice honoree, she is also the author of Fruits of Victory: The Woman's Land Army in the Great War.
