The Wayne County Council of Republican Women was formed in 1952 with Mrs. Edward Kinsmen serving as our first President. We are part of the Pennsylvania Federation of Republican Women and the National Federation of Republican Women.

For over 70+ years, our council has supported local, state and federal candidates, help strengthen the party, advance women in political knowledge and political activity, promote honest government and unselfish patriotism.

Our Council meets monthly with educational speakers and our group, through the National Federation, adopts projects to help better our community. These includes Literacy and Reading, Americanism, donate to local food banks, toy drives and the Dessin Animal shelter.
