The story begins in Nashville in 1920. Laura Clay, Kentucky's most well-known is there, not to urge the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, but rather to support anti-suffragists' efforts to defeat it. The introduction lays out why Kentucky's struggle to give women the vote matters and particularly emphasizes the ways race will influence the movement's development.
