Jessie Lloyd was not a single-issue campaigner and did not see alcohol as the only scourge of humanity: at the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union convention of 1960 she stated that the greatest problem of the day was inadequate food for the world’s people.
Jessie Lloyd had joined the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union as a young woman. Her activities focussed particularly on educating children about the importance of teetotalism for the health and the welfare of society. One important W.C.T.U. programme for children was the elocution contest, in which they would recite poems or prose on the subject of temperance.
