In August 1920 in Nashville, Tennessee legislators cast the deciding vote to ratify the 19th Amendment, thus giving women in the United States the right to vote. Narrated by Rosanne Cash, "By One Vote: Woman Suffrage in the South" chronicles events leading up to that turbulent, nail-biting showdown.
- In the summer of 1920,
the all male Tennessee House
of Representatives would determine
if women across the United States would be allowed
American women had spent decades fighting
through complex layers of social,
political and racial constraints.
Rosanne Cash as we tell the story
about Tennessee women won the vote
for all women.
"By One Vote,
"Woman Suffrage in the South."
