Annotation: A well researched summary of the life of activist Kate Trimble Woolsey of Covington who was more often in New York or Europe than in her home town working for women's rights and suffrage in particular. She gave up her membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution due to conflicting opinions though she continued to speak for and support the Colonial Daughters - and served as a vice president of the General Federation of Woman's Clubs for many years. Her noteworthiness in Kentucky history is important even though she attended conventions sometimes on behalf of Covington and most often as a New Yorker. By focusing in on Woolsey, we find out that women's rights had been a part of the earliest debates in Kentucky lawmaking though never enough support for first readings that were then recorded.
