Louisville had been a perpetual disappointment to suffrage leaders, experiencing very little growth until 1909. Following the National convention, held there in 1911, it became a stronghold for KERA. This chapter describes the factors that allowed Louisville women to become key players and emphasizes how this new urban, Progressive contingent pushed KERA to broaden its goals and embrace new tactics such as militancy and new constituencies, including Jewish women and working women.

Keywords:   1911 NAWSA convention, Susan Look Avery, Emergency Association, Louisville Woman Suffrage Association, Female High School, Working women, Militancy
