Who tended to be supporters of prohibition why did they support it?

Prohibition of alcohol was mostly supported by women; the main organization that worked to enact Prohibition was the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Women often had terrible problems because their husbands, whom the women depended upon to support their families, would often spend all their money on drinks in bars, instead of bringing it home to be used to pay the rent, buy food, etc. It was believed that the best solution to this problem was to simply prohibit the sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages. Of course, this solution did not work as planned.
