Kentucky white women win school suffrage rights statewide

Kristen Dawson's picture

In 1908, 1910, and 1912, the Kentucky Federation of Women’s Clubs (whites only) lobbied and proposed school suffrage in Kentucky, finally winning it back in 1912 with an added proviso (just for women) of a “literacy” test.
