This chapter discusses the earliest instances of women voting in the U. S., including Kentucky's 1838 school suffrage provision. It also traces the origins of the national woman's rights movement. It details sporadic attempts by Kentuckians to raise the issue in places like Glendale and Dayton, Kentucky. It paints a picture of the dire consequences opponents believed would follow if woman's rights activists had their way. Henry Watterson's Courier-Journal, a key opinion maker in the state, actively opposed woman suffrage.

Keywords:   School suffrage, Glendale, Kentucky, Dayton, Kentucky, Henry Watterson
