History of the Republican Party
The Republican Party was born in the early 1850's by anti-slavery activist and individuals who believe that government should grant western lands to settlers free of charge. In 1860, the Republicans successfully elected their nominee to the Presidency-Abraham Lincoln.
During Lincoln's Presidency, the United Stares was wracked by Civil War. During that war, and against eh advice of his cabinet, Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed the slaves. The Republicans of their day worked to pass the Thirteenth Amendment which outlawed slavery, the Fourteenth which guaranteed equal protection under the laws, and the Fifteenth, which help secure voting rights for African-Americans. That historic relationship is why the first African-American Congressmen were Republicans.
In 1896, Republicans were the first major party to argue for securing women the right to vote. When the Nineteenth Amendment was finally added to the Constitution, 26 to 36 state legislatures that had voted to ratify it were under Republican control. The first woman elected to Congress was a Republican, Jeannette Rankin from Montana in 1917.
Presidents during most of the late 19th Century and early part of the 20th Century were Republicans. While the Democrats and Franklin Roosevelt tend to dominate American politics in the 1930's and 1040's, for 28 of the 42 years from 1952 through 2004, the White House has been in Republican hands, under Presidents Eisenhower Nixon, Ford, Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. Under Reagan and Bush Sr., the United States became the world's only superpower, winning the Cold War from the old Soviet Union and releasing millions from Communist oppression.
History of the National Federation of Republican Women
Republican Women's clubs have existed for over 100 years. They were originally inspire by the Republican Platform of 1872 which said: "The Republican Party is mindful of its obligations to the loyal women of America, for their noble devotion to the cause of Freedom". With that, Republican women's clubs were off and running. The oldest club on record was founded in Salt Lake City in the late 1800's.
Under the direction of Miss Marion E. Martin, who was then the Assistant Chairman of the Republican National Committee and national Committeewoman for Maine, and with the encouragement of RNC Chairman John D. M. Hamiltion, an organizational meeting took place in Chicago on November 4, 1937. Thirty-eight women members of the Republican National Committee met to discuss the "desirability" of federating. The National Federation of Women was founded at a conference held at the Palmer House in Chicago, September 23-24, 1938. The delegates adopted rules for governing the establishment of a Nation Federation of Women's Republican Clubs to promote education along political lines, and encourage the following purposed:
"To foster and encourage loyalty to the Republican Party and the ideals for which it stands; to foster cooperation between independent groups and the regular party organization, which are for the same objectives, namely sound government; to promote interchange ideas and experiences of various clubs to the end that the politics, which have proven particularly effective none state, may be adopted in another; and to encourage a national attitude and approach to the problems facing the Republican Party."
The organization was originally known as the National Federation of Women's Republican Clubs of American (NFRWRC). THE names was changed in January 1953 to the National Federation of Republican Women (NFWR).
