Cobb County Republican Women's Club update...

Thanks to this month's luncheon sponsor!

Sheila J. Brower, CCRWC PresidentWe are very proud to announce our General Luncheon Meeting on July 24th at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center located at 500 Powder Springs St. SW, Marietta, GA from 11:30-1:00 p.m. And, if you choose, come early and meet the candidates starting at 11:00 a.m. Our speaker for the meeting will be Ralph Reed, Chairman, Faith and Freedom Coalition… you don’t want to miss what he has to say.
As with our last meeting, we are taking all the safety precautions required and so is the Hilton. We are requesting that you wear your masks when you are going through registration. We are also asking that you PRE-REGISTER AND PAY IN ADVANCE due to social distancing rules and that you do this as soon as you can in order to plan the social distancing set-up based on registration numbers. We had a great attendance last time, gained many new members and we hope you will make plans to come out and join us. We would love to have you. Please go to to register. 

We will also celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment which gave Women the right to vote. The Republican Party pioneered the right of women to vote and was consistent in its support throughout the long campaign for acceptance. It was the first major party to advocate equal rights for women and the principle of equal pay for equal work. 

A little more history that I received from the National Federation of Republican Women:

The Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, N.Y., in 1848 marked the beginning of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Two years later there was a nationwide meeting in Worcester, Mass. 

By 1870, the Massachusetts Republican State Convention had already seated two suffragists, Lucy Stone and Mary A. Livermore, as delegates. In addition, the National Republican Convention of 1872 approved a resolution favoring the admission of women to “wider fields of usefulness” and added that “the honest demand of this class of citizens for additional rights … should be treated with respectful consideration.” 

Wyoming, the state that pioneered women’s suffrage, sent two women, Therese A. Jenkins and Cora G. Carleton, to the 1892 Republican Convention in Minneapolis as alternate delegates. This was the first time women were seated at a Republican National Convention.

This convention was also the first to be addressed by a woman, J. Ellen Foster, chairman of the Women’s Republican Association of the United States. A strong believer in organization, Foster said her association had prepared work plans for women’s involvement in national politics. Copies were given to each delegate and alternate. “We are here to help you,” she declared, “and we are here to stay.” 

At the request of Susan B. Anthony, Sen. A.A. Sargent, a Republican from California, introduced the 19th Amendment in 1878. Sargent’s amendment (also known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment) was defeated four times by a Democrat-controlled Senate. When the Republican Party regained control of Congress in 1919, the Equal Suffrage Amendment finally passed the House in May of that year and in the Senate in June. 

When the Amendment was submitted to the states, 26 of the 36 states that ratified it had Republican legislatures. Of the nine states that voted against ratification, eight were Democratic. Twelve states, all Republican, had given women full suffrage before the federal amendment was ratified. 

On August 18, 1920, Tennessee became the 36th and final state needed to ratify the amendment. The U.S. Secretary of State certified the amendment on Aug. 26, 1920.

We hope you will get out and VOTE ON AUGUST 11th

The next luncheon will be Friday, July 24th.
The Hilton is a COVID-compliant facility and works very hard to keep their establishment safe for all who visit. Please make sure you wear a mask while going through the cafeteria-style food line (food served by Hilton staff) and please do not move the dining chairs around. Out of respect for the Hilton and its staff, let's try not to do anything that may put them at risk of being non-compliant. RSVP ASAP so they can plan the seating arrangement. (Thank you.)
