Organizer: American Promise
In this edition of our quarterly Citizen Leaders Book Club, we'll be celebrating both Constitution Day and the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment with author Elaine Weiss! In her latest book, "The Woman's Hour," Weiss examines the decades-long suffragist movement that led to the 19th Amendment and women gaining the right to vote. (Importantly, suffrage for women of color is owing to the work and leadership of suffragists of color that continued well after the 19th Amendment.) In our conversation, we'll discuss the suffragist movement's successes and shortcomings and the inspiration and lessons we, as Americans, can use to form a more perfect union today.

Women are more than half the population and have cast almost ten million more votes than men in recent elections.
And yet, women are often thought of as a specific constituency as opposed to the larger number of practicing voters. On the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage, join Emily Tisch Sussman in conversation with Valerie Jarrett to explore how women went from disenfranchised to the deciders of the next president.
Lamendola is the research director at RepresentWomen, which advocates for political reforms it believes would result in more women holding elective office.
