Oklahoma

Oklahoma, one of the youngest states in the nation, admitted to the Union in 1907, was populated by Indians removed from the southeast in the 1880s, and land-hungry farmers in the land runs and lotteries of the 1890s. Most of these people were advocates of the principles of the Southern Democrat Party, which dominated Oklahoma politics for sixty years.

A Republican success during this time occurred in the wake of women's suffrage when, in 1920, Alice M. Robertson became the onlyOklahoma woman elected to Congress.

Congresswoman Robertson subsequently founded the first Oklahoma Republican Women's Club in Oklahoma City in 1921. There were few successes during the next 20 years, but the faithful few worked hard, served well, and grew with Oklahoma. In 1941, the Republican Women's Clubs in Oklahoma were federated. Since that time the Oklahoma Federation now has 27 clubs with over 1100 members. OFRW celebrated its 75th year in 2015.

Club members diligently serve in local, state and national campaigns and get out the vote programs. Many members have been elected to statewide offices and offices in their respective counties.

The Oklahoma First Ladies program honors outstanding Oklahoma Republican women at an annual luncheon and provides funding for the programs and contributions to Republican candidates.

Republican Women Care - Through "Caring for America" committees, local clubs serve their communities by participating in literacy projects, purchasing library books, supporting our troops in combat, helping needy families and helping to build houses for Habitat for Humanity, among others. They also contribute to the NFRW internship and scholarship programs.
