The Montgomery County Womens' Republican Club (MCWRC), one of Maryland's foremost political organizations, brings women together to positively impact the direction of our county, state and nation. As leaders 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 as well as power from our grassroots political activism. We also are affiliated with the Maryland Federation of Republican Women (MFRW) founded in1921. 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 root of activism continues today!

MCFRW is open to all women who embrace the Republican Philosophy and are registered Republicans. We offer membership, political education, leadership training, candidate recruitment and campaign involvement.

Under the MCFRW umbrella, we have five (5) local clubs with a membership of over 300 women. Each local club sets its own membership dues, activities, meeting time and place 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 each club, see their various activities, programs and election events they undertake. For more information, contact the club Presidents from either Chevy Chase, Olney, Potomac, Rural or Upper Montgomery County Republican Womens' club and feel free to attend a meeting of your choice. You will be glad you did.

Please - come and join us! Together we can build a better future for our county, state and country.

Anne Koutsoutis - President MCFRW

(Please see the photo of OWRC Exec. Board)
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.
