During the 19-teens, the Kentucky suffrage movement's momentum began to build. Groups like the Kentucky Federation of Women's Clubs, the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and the Kentucky Education Association pledged support for suffrage, demonstrating its new identity as a mainstream cause. KERA especially targeted men in their efforts to win new converts. The cause still struggled, however, in rural Kentucky. Only by acknowledging deeply rooted values centered on God, family, and community would the suffrage movement gain headway there.
