Celebrating Over 60 Years of Republican Activities



Chevy Chase | Olney | Potomac | Rural | Upper Montgomery


The Montgomery Federation of Republican Women (MCFRW) one of Marylandís foremost political organizations, brings together women to positively impact the direction of our county, state and nation. We come together as a collective force, advancing the power of women through political access and participation. MCFRW, affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) comprises the largest all-women political organization in the world! Our strength comes from diversity of opinion, culture and experience and our power from our grassroots political activism. We are also affiliated with the Maryland Federation of Republican Women (MFRW) founded in 1921.

The first MFRW club included a group of six activist women whose initial goals were organization, education and legislation to repeal many of the old English laws still on the books that discriminated against women. That spirit of activism continues today!

The Montgomery County Federation of Republican Women (MCFRW), is open to women who embrace the Republican Philosophy and are registered Republicans. We offer our membership political education, leadership training, candidate recruitment and campaign involvement.

MCFRW has a membership of over 300 with five local clubs. Each local club sets its own membership dues, activities, meeting time and, within the bylaws of the goals and objectives of MFRW and NFRW, their own objectives. Our five local clubs are listed at the top of this page. We invite you to look at the web calendar to view each club to see the various activities, programs and election events they undertake. For more information contact the club presidents and feel free to participate as a guest.

Together we can build a better future for our county, state and country. Join Us!

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
