In August 1920 in Nashville, Tennessee, the 19th Amendment was passed in the Tennessee Legislature, in a turbulent, nail-biting session, by one vote. The result: women in the United States finally had the right to cast a ballot. NPT’s original documentary “By One Vote: Woman Suffrage in the South” includes interviews with dozens of experts including nationally recognized Southern suffrage expert Marjorie Spruill and Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour.
