LRWF's Mission Statement


Lee Republican Women Federated commits to

advancing the participation of local Republican

women in all areas of the political system by

encouraging, educating and empowering women

to strengthen the Republican Party.


LRWF encourages women to influence critical local,

state and national issues.


LRWF educates the members on the political process

and current local, state and national issues.


LRWF empowers women to assist the GOP in electing

qualified Republicans to office, and promote Republican

initiatives on a local, state and national level.


LRWF understands that it is our responsibility to

hold government responsible on every level...and

LRWF is ready for that challenge.

Our history

Lee Republican Women Federated (LRWF) was chartered in 1986 by the Florida Federation of Republican Women. Our founders were eleven strong women with a vision for Republican women in Lee County, the State and the Country. Our members, now better than 150 strong, have worked tirelessly to elect Republicans in every election.


Through our Book Chats, speakers, Legislation, Republican Museum, Outreach, and Caring for America projects we have educated ourselves, promoted Republican values, and given to those less fortunate. Along with Lee County Bikers, we have gone to the airport to welcome home our returning military heroes.


As part of the FFRW, we are also affiliated with the National Federation Republican Women, a grassroots organization of more than 100,000 women throughout the country that support Republican candidates and issues at all levels of government. Our members have served as officers and committee members on both the FFRW board and the NFRW board.


LRWF members are a powerful network of ladies who are counted on to produce results in elections. We  re successful in giving our membership an unparalleled education on the political process and current issues. We work for both primary and general elections, man Republican headquarters, host voter registration drives and candidate forums, walk door to door and make thousands of phone calls.


Our founding Mothers had a vision and we thank them for their foresight and guidance. Lee Republican Women Federated has proven to be a home for conservative leaders. And one of the special side effects is that we have also made lasting friendships with people we would never have had the opportunity to meet if we hadn’t joined LRWF.
