Description: A high-profile journalist brings the women's suffrage movement to life in this latest addition to the Turning Points series On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified and women in America finally won the right to vote. Now, in this riveting account, journalist and pundit Eleanor Clift captures the drama of the women's suffrage movement-and shows how the issues and arguments that surrounded the suffragettes still reverberate today. Beginning with the Seneca Falls Women's Rights Convention of 1848, Clift introduces us to the movement's leaders, takes us on marches and demonstrations, and profiles the opposition-anti-suffragettes, both men and women, who would do anything to stop women from getting the vote. The story culminates in the dramatic struggle to pass the 19th Amendment-a struggle that ultimately came down to the vote of a single legislator in Tennessee. Eleanor Clift (Washington, DC) is a contributing editor for Newsweek, where she reports on the White House, presidential politics, and a variety of national issues. She is a regular panelist on the nationally syndicated TV show The McLaughlin Group and a political analyst for the Fox News Network. With her husband, Tom Brazaitis, she is the author of Madam President and War without Bloodshed.
