Overview

Speaker: Author Elaine Weiss This program is presented in partnership with Preservation Maryland. Learn about 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. A Jewish “militant” suffragette plays a starring role in the drama; a Jewish Tennessee delegate, dedicated to justice, becomes a hero; and Maryland stands on the wrong side of history. And at the very last moment, a crucial vote of conscience is secured by a mother’s letter.
