The FCRW is a private organization that promotes Republican ideals that positively impact our state and nation. Historically, the Republican Party championed freedom from slavery in the United States through the efforts of then-President Abraham Lincoln and the passage of the 13th Amendment, and women’s rights through the efforts of suffragists, Lucy Stone and Mary Livermore. At the request of Susan B. Anthony, Sen. A.A. Sargent, a Republican from California, introduced the 19th Amendment in 1878. Sargent’s amendment (also known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment) was defeated four times by a Democrat-controlled Senate. Republicans continue to champion freedom, prosperity and opportunity for American citizens. More questions?

FCRW was chartered in January, 1953 and was one of the first to be so chartered in North Carolina. Since its initial charter, many FCRW members have successfully sought positions in our state organization, North Carolina Federation of Republican Women (NCFRW), our national organization, National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) as well as various positions in government.
The Forsyth County Republican Women exist to build the Republican Party through increased membership and to win Republican victories by providing leadership and a workforce at the grassroots level.
