Welcome to Minnesota Federation of Republican Women. We are a group dedicated to electing qualified Republican women and men to office. We activate women across the state in political campaigns and work to strengthen the structure of the Republican Party. Our membership is a wide span of ages, interests and careers. Our local, state and national organization provides many networking opportunities and individual members grow their leadership skills. Join in the fun. If you would like to start a club, we will help you build and grow!
Proud to be an American — Through the Year
In February we salute outstanding Americans and events that made our country great:
On February 1 we salute Hattie Ophelia Wyatt Caraway who was the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate, the first woman to preside over the Senate, the first to chair a Senate committee, and the first to preside over a Senate hearing. She was born on this day in 1878 and served in the Senate from 1931 to 1945.
On February 3 the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing the right of citizens to vote, regardless of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. It was authored by Republicans.
On February 6 we salute our 40th president, Ronald Reagan who was born on this day in 1911. He spent 30 years as an entertainer in radio, film, and television before becoming governor of California in 1966. Elected to the White House in 1980, he survived an assassination attempt and became the most popular president since Franklin Roosevelt.
February 12, 1809 is the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, our 16th U.S. President. He led the nation through the tumultuous Civil War, freed the slaves, composed the Gettysburg Address, and established Thanksgiving.
On February 15, 1820 Susan B. Anthony was born in Massachusetts. A pioneer in women’s rights, she worked tirelessly for woman’s suffrage and in 1872 was arrested after voting (illegally) in the presidential election. She was commemorated in 1979 with the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin, thus becoming the first American woman to have her image on a U.S. coin.
Finally, on February 22, 1732 George Washington was born in Virginia. He served as commander of the Continental Army during the American Revolution and became the first U.S. President.

We believe the strength of our nation lies within the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
We believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all regardless of race, creed, age, sex, national origin or disability.
We believe that free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, growth and prosperity.
We believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
We believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
We believe the most effective, responsibly and responsive government is government closest to the people.
We believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
We believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
We believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
