Madeline Breckinridge approached the 1916 legislative session with zeal and determination, although exhausted from her three years as president of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association and ill with tuberculosis. Upon relinquishing the presidency of KERA, she accepted the position of legislative campaign chair, which gave her the responsibility for organizing the drive to get the General Assembly to pass a state constitutional amendment for woman suffrage. On January 4, Madeline formally opened KERA headquarters in Frankfort.
