Less than one month after American women were finally granted the right to vote in 1920, four pioneering San Antonio women took steps to form the first Republican women’s club in Texas! Before the end of the first year, the response to the club was overwhelming, as more than 600 women answered the call to become more politically involved.
Even during the decades when the state leadership of Texas remained staunchly Democrat, the club persevered and ensured the survival of the Republican Party in the state.
Today, that club is known as the Bexar County Republican Women (BCRW), and is the third-oldest organization of its kind in the nation. Its long history of dedicated service to Republican Party principles, its outstanding leaders, and its unwavering volunteer commitment over the last century of Texas politics has ensured BCRW will be a force to reckon with for years to come.
Over the next week, we will be focusing on some of the amazing BCRW leaders of today-sharing their inspiring stories to encourage the next generation of Texas women as they work to advance the timeless values of the Republican Party!
Don’t Mess With Texas… Women!
