InfoLaura Clay was born February 9, 1849 to Cassius M. Clay and Mary Jane Warfield Clay, she was the third daughter, the eighth child, and arguably the most renowned of the couple. The only adult child not to marry, instead Laura Clay devoted her life to the women's suffrage movement. Influenced by her older sisters and her mother, Laura Clay spent her life in defending women's rights. Laura Clay worked with Susan B. Anthony in establishing women's suffrage societies throughout Kentucky and she was a co-founder of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association, serving as President from its conception in 1888 until 1912. Although for equality for women, Laura Clay believed that each state should separately vote on the issue of women's rights, and was not in favor of the 19th amendment, in which the Federal Government granted rights to every state collectively. In the 1920 Democratic National Convention Laura Clay made United States history as the first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party. Laura Clay died on June 29, 1941 and is buried in the Lexington Cemetery.
