Carry A. Nation


Carry A. Nation's main contribution to the Temperance Movement was:


Her direct non-violent actions designed to shame drinkers and saloon owners.


Using her proximity and access to politicians to push for laws to stop drinking in towns and cities and states across the country.


Tying the anti-saloon movement to women's suffrage, so that women could directly affect the political steps needed to ban alcohol.


Taking over the WCTU at the end of the century and leading it towards the ultimate success of the Eighteenth Amendment, which put Prohibition in place for the country.


Engaging in violent actions against saloons and bars, providing a more direct method of stopping drinking and a radical fringe to the WCTU's more mainstream methods.
