 The subject of the larger women’s vote was regularly covered by the press. ​ The [[Boone County Recorder]]’s editorial columns often praised the courageous hearts and gentle souls of local ladies, but did not support their right to vote.  This flattery did little to quiet the narrative; discussion continued. ​  One editorial contributor to the Recorder in 1902 pointed out the root of the movement, noting the following: “is it not merely an objection to taxation without representation?​” His resolution was to offer the women’s club of the grange (agricultural organization) as an outlet for women to exercise voting rights. ​ The subject of the larger women’s vote was regularly covered by the press. ​ The [[Boone County Recorder]]’s editorial columns often praised the courageous hearts and gentle souls of local ladies, but did not support their right to vote.  This flattery did little to quiet the narrative; discussion continued. ​  One editorial contributor to the Recorder in 1902 pointed out the root of the movement, noting the following: “is it not merely an objection to taxation without representation?​” His resolution was to offer the women’s club of the grange (agricultural organization) as an outlet for women to exercise voting rights. ​

 By 1916, women’s suffrage made the news with even more frequency, but had become a more complicated issue. ​  ​Often,​ the women’s suffrage movement was linked to other causes: the temperance movement, child labor issues, and adult workers’ rights among them.   Many of the same advocates for women’s voting rights were also vocal on these issues and the suffrage movement was rarely mentioned as an independent issue. ​ Prohibition of alcohol was the most divisive of these causes, and often was presented as cause for opposition to the vote for women. By 1916, women’s suffrage made the news with even more frequency, but had become a more complicated issue. ​  ​Often,​ the women’s suffrage movement was linked to other causes: the temperance movement, child labor issues, and adult workers’ rights among them.   Many of the same advocates for women’s voting rights were also vocal on these issues and the suffrage movement was rarely mentioned as an independent issue. ​ Prohibition of alcohol was the most divisive of these causes, and often was presented as cause for opposition to the vote for women.
