The Randall L. Tobias Center for Leadership Excellence invites you to the 2019 Hazelett Forum featuring award winning journalist Elaine Weiss, author of “The Woman’s Hour, The Great Fight to Win The Vote.” Do not miss this opportunity to hear about one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote.
Elaine Weiss is a journalist and author whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, Harper’s, The 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 the author of the highly acclaimed narrative non-fiction book, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight for the Vote (Viking 2018), hailed as a “riveting, nail-biting political thriller” with powerful parallels to today’s political environment. Weiss is also the author of Fruits of Victory: The Woman’s Land Army in the Great War, the inspiring story of a long-forgotten women’s movement.
