NFRW Celebrates Diamond Anniversary

The National Federation of Republican Women celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2013! The following if from the newsletter:
This year, NFRW celebrates its 75th diamond anniversary. When Marion Martin called a meeting at the Palmer House in Chicago in 1938, three states had not even ratified the 19th amendment allowing women to vote, and Republicans were only represented by 89 Republicans in the House of Representatives, 16 Republicans in the Senate, and 6 Republican Governors in the age of the New Deal. Today, Republicans do not hold the presidency or a majority in the Senate, but there are 30 Republican Governors and a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. Much has changed since NFRW formed, and we still have far to go.
