The Nebraska Federation affiliated with the NFRW in 1956. The Hon. Hazel Abel, U.S. senator from Nebraska in 1954, became acquainted with NFRW officers and was encouraged to begin organizing Republican women's clubs in Nebraska. She served as the founding president.
The main objectives of the Nebraska Federation are to promote an informed public through political education and activity, increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government, foster loyalty to and promote the principles of the Republican Party, and elect Republicans in the state.
