Mary Jane Warfield Clay
Mary Jane Clay became active in the woman suffrage movement after an acrimonious divorce from her husband, Cassius M. Clay. Although the divorce deprived her of financial assets she produced through her good management skills, she was financially secure through family inheritance. She used her own financial resources to further the woman suffrage cause in Kentucky and encouraged her daughters to get involved.
