WE ARE THE PENNSYLVANIA FEDERATION OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN
Pennsylvania's Republican Women have always been a formidable force. Since 1923 we have been changing the face of politics throughout the Commonwealth! Organized to serve as a network for Republican Women interested in good government and Republican ideals, we confer with Republican Leaders, manage campaigns, advise officials and WE RUN FOR OFFICE! Above all, we get Republicans elected!
The Federation is comprised of Local Councils from across the Commonwealth. We are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of our Executive Committee, Regional Directorsand Standing and Special Committees. Our Board meets at least Four times a year and the business of the organization culminates at our Annual Meeting usually held in September or October.
In 1952 PFRW purchased a house at 806 North Second Street in our Capitol City of Harrisburg. It became and remains our Home and Headquarters.
Our Mission is to
support and strengthen the Republican Party as well as to advance women
in political knowledge and political activity through networking with
Republican Party leaders at the local, county, state and national level.
