The mission of Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated is to bring women together to educate members about local, state and national issues; to improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County through political activity and community involvement; to advance the participation of Republican women in all areas of our political system; and to encourage and support qualified Republican women to seek and win public office. 

Message from President Maddie McNeal  

Welcome to Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated (RWOF).  We are part of the largest and most active political organization dedicated to women in America. Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is one of the largest grassroots political organizations in the country.

The objective of our organization is to strengthen the Republican Party by educating and empowering Republican women in the political process and provide a forum for them to serve as leaders in their communities

Our monthly programs are designed to keep you better informed about National, State, and Local candidates as well as crucial issues that face our community, state and nation.

2018 has been a very busy year.  We had School Board Elections and, of course, the Mid-Term Elections.  I do hope that all the good that President Trump has done for this country continues by keeping Republicans in office across the country and particularly in Florida.  Whatever the outcome, we will continue to work hard in support of our elected officials and future candidates.  Before you know it, 2020 will be here and we better to be ready to get President Trump re-elected.                            PAINT THE STATE RED

Welcome to new member Dottie Porter (pictured) and returning members Mary Ann Severs and Lois Hoyt.  

We're so glad you have joined!

The highlight of the day‘s program was RWOF member and Okaloosa County Commissioner Carolyn Ketchel’s reenactment of a rousing speech from 1919. In honor of the club’s 40th year and in recognition of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial, the club contributed $100 to the Women’s Veterans Monument to be built at Veteran’s Park on Okaloosa Island.
