Republicans pioneered the efforts of women in this country to finally amend the Constitution to recognize their right to vote. Many women who are members of the Republican Party run for office successfully, and have achieved the highest recognition within the party for their abilities and perspectives. Our Republican platform is one that parallels the goals of families – safety, financial security, education and prosperity. That’s why so many women are involved with the Republican Party and supporting our candidates for office. We have a long-term vision, and we understand that the sacrifices we make today mean a better and safer tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.
