The Dry's Reason
A mother caring for her sons future due to alcohol.
Most of the Dry's were religious (mostly Evangelic witnesses). These people kept a strong belief that alcohol was and still is the Devil's drink. Other enforcers of prohibition were the Women's Temperance Movement, which believed that without alcohol, jobs would go up and family's structure would improve. Their reasons for supporting alcohol prohibition were very different, they argued that alcohol was creating violence. They said that since alcohol was first made, it created nothing but inequality for women. Since most of the "Dries" were women, they mentioned family issues and how alcohol had created separation in the family, they also said they feared their child would follow the habit of their father.
