Quotes by Prominent Members


Diane Black

“When I think of the hard work of my friends at NFRW, I remember that classic quote by British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher: ‘If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.’

“The ladies of the NFRW are known for putting in the time and energy needed to elect conservatives across the ticket, and having a good time doing it. I’m so thankful for the friendships I’ve formed at my local NFRW chapter and how the NFRW has stood with me in my campaigns. If you are considering becoming an NFRW member, I hope you won’t wait another day. They are making a real difference in our political landscape, and it is a joy to be a part of their efforts.”

– Congressman Diane Black, TN-06, and member of Sumner County Republican Women


Marsha Blackburn

"It’s a great honor to represent and advocate on behalf of hardworking women not only in Tennessee, but across the country as well. My success could not have been possible without the support of women like those at the National Federation of Republican Women. The ladies of NFRW’s commitment to championing women’s success is vital to our efforts and motivating to so many women. NFRW knows the importance of inspiring women and encouraging them to reach for their dreams. It is imperative that we take on this battle together, and I am pleased to play a part in encouraging my fellow Republican women."

“The hardworking and committed individuals of the National Federation of Republican Women are vital to the success of conservative Republican candidates.

NFRW is the heart and soul of our party, and I have been fortunate to have their support.”

Beth Harwell

“Since 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women has played a fundamental role in bringing women into the political process. Through the effective efforts of the Federation, women have now moved to the frontlines of the American political arena. As Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives, I truly appreciate the support afforded me by all the local Republican women’s clubs and both the state and national federations.”

Kay Bailey Hutchison

“No organization has been more essential than the NFRW in building and maintaining our majorities in legislatures and statehouses all around the country. I am so proud to have been part of this dynamic, visionary group for so many years. It represents the bright future of the Republican Party.”

– Former U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas, and member of Northwood Republican Women


Elise Stefanik

“Since 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women has served to connect and to empower women in politics. Now one of the largest women’s political organizations in the Country, the NFRW is building on that history by promoting the growing number of Republican women running for office at the local, state and national levels. Two years ago, I ran for Congress, in part, because we need more women at the table, and because it’s time for more of our voices to be heard at the ballot box. I’m grateful for the NFRW’s support for my campaign for new ideas and real results for the 21st District in New York State, and am proud of the role it will continue to play in empowering and encouraging even more women to participate in our Democracy.”

– Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, NY-21, and member of the New York State Federation of Republican Women
