Our History

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.
