In 2004, a small group of Fayette County women decided to hold a rally in the county for the Democratic candidate, John Kerry. Since that time, this small group has evolved and expanded into a strong, dynamic force of over 100 women that supports and strengthens all facets of the Democratic party and women’s participation in it.
FDW is an organization that empowers progressive Democratic women to be leaders and decision-makers in their county and beyond.
