The centennial of suffrage for many women in the United States is approaching in 2020. With this landmark anniversary embodied in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, the National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS) and the William G. Pomeroy Foundation have partnered to launch a new historic marker program which will be part of the National Votes for Women Trail (NVWT) .

The third of five markers in Kentucky will be dedicated at 2:00 pm on June 2, 2019 at White Hall State Historic Site in Richmond, KY to commemorate the legacy of Mary Barr Clay. Clay, the eldest daughter of Mary Jane Warfield and Cassius M. Clay, served as a leader in both national suffrage organizations – the National Woman Suffrage Association and the American Woman Suffrage Association – and started the state’s first permanent women’s rights association in Madison County in 1879. She spoke in support of suffrage before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee in 1884.

Sallie Clay Lanham, a descendent of Mary Barr Clay will address guests. In addition to Molly Caldwell, President of the Kentucky State Parks Foundation and NCWHS President Marsha Weinstein, the dedication ceremony will feature a presentation by Dr. Melanie Goan, Associate Professor of History at the University of Kentucky and Coordinator of the Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project.
