Suffrage topic of Friday book discussion

The League of Women Voters Door County is kicking off its celebration of the 100th anniversary of the women’s suffrage movement and the ratification of the 19th amendment with a book discussion Friday morning. Visitors to the Sturgeon Bay branch of the Door County Library will be able to video call with author Elaine Weiss, who captured seven decades of the fight to help women get the right to vote in her book “The Woman’s Hour.” LWC Door County action coordinator Pat Scieszinski says it captures the women’s suffrage movement well, especially the battle over voting rights that occurred in Tennessee, the final state to ratify the 19th amendment.

The book discussion will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Several events are scheduled to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the League of Women Voters and the 19th amendment over the coming months including movie showings in December and a birthday party for the organization in February.
