Women's Caucus Endorsed Sean Delahanty

Women's Suffrage Ribbon, Louisville

Women’s Suffrage

19th Amendment turns 100

The following lyric is a revision of the song “My Old Kentucky Home”.  The lyric was composed by Madeline McDowell Breckinridge in celebration of Kentucky women gaining the right to vote in state and presidential elections.

Some Kentucky women had been able to vote in local school board elections and in local referendums on school taxes since 1830. The 19th Amendment in 1920 however revised the 15th Amendment emphasizing universal male suffrage.

The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home,
‘Tis winter, the ladies are gay,
The corn top’s gone, prohibition’s in the swing,
The colonel’s in eclipse and the women in the ring.
We’ll get all our rights with the help of Uncle Sam,
For the way that they come, we don’t give a ____.
Weep no more, my lady, Oh, weep no more today,
For we’ll vote one vote for the old Kentucky home,
The old Kentucky home, far away.

Remember to vote Tuesday, November 6.  Sean Delahanty has been endorsed by The Caucus, formally known as the Metropolitian Louisville Women’s Political Caucus.  Delahanty hopes that his record of 20 years on the bench serves as an example of his dedication towards equality.
