Ha, yeah right...
Tennessee became the focus of national attention during the campaign for women’s voting rights. Like the [[temperance movement]], [[women’s suffrage]] was an issue with its roots in middle-class reform efforts of the late 19th century.
 
 
The organized movement came of age with the founding of the [[Tennessee Equal Suffrage Association]] in 1906. Despite a determined (and largely female) opposition, Tennessee suffragists were moderate in their tactics and gained limited voting rights before the national question arose.
 
 
In 1920, Governor [[Albert Roberts]] called a special session of the [[Tennessee General Assembly|General Assembly]] to consider ratification of the [[Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution]].
 
 
Leaders of the rival groups flooded into Nashville to lobby the General Assembly. In a close House vote, the suffrage amendment won passage when an East Tennessee legislator, Harry Burn, switched sides after receiving a telegram from his mother encouraging him to support ratification.
 
 
Tennessee thereby became the pivotal state to approve the Nineteenth Amendment.
 
 
Women immediately made their presence felt by swinging Tennessee to [[Warren Harding]] in the 1920 presidential election. It was the first time since 1868 that the state had voted for a [[Republican Party (United States)|Republican]] presidential candidate.
