About Us

George Mason Republican Women (GMRW) is a hard-working political organization, filled with talented leaders that have years of experience in Republican politics and governmental service.  We are known as a “Working Club”. We support our local, state and federal candidates through our volunteer efforts and contributions.  We understand the critical role that politics and governance plays in our lives and we are proud to have members who are serving, or have served, as elected officials, party leaders, campaign managers, treasurers, and office managers for various campaigns. In fact, GMRW members have filled almost every position in political campaigns. If you are looking for a women's organization that is serious about making a difference, then GMRW is the place for you!


GMRW was chartered June 11, 1962 as a unit of the Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW-1952).  The VFRW is a chapter of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW-1938), which is headquartered in Alexandria VA.


The GMRW hosts one meeting each month, except for July and August.  Most often, our meetings are held during the day.  Currently, our meetings are held in in the King's Park Library. We host interesting speakers including local, state and federal Republican political leaders and nationally recognized Republican dignitaries. 


Our annual dues of $35.00 will entitle you to receive the GMRW newsletter, the VFRW newsletter, and the “Republican Woman”, a magazine published by the NFRW.


Republican Party of Virginia Creed

We Believe:

That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government,

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense,

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.



George Mason Biography


That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent natural Rights, of which, when they enter into a state society, they cannot by any compact deprive or divest their posterity, namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of  acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining Happiness and Safety.

George Mason, Virginia Declaration of Rights, May 1776

George Mason IV, (December 11, 1725-October 7, 1792) was an American patriot, statesman, and delegate from Virginia to the U.S. Constitutional Convention in 1787.  He is considered one of the Founding Fathers.

Mason was the eldest son of George and Ann Thomson Mason and a fourth generation Virginian.  George Mason died when young George was ten leaving his mother to raise her children alone.  When George turned 21 he took over management of his inheritance; \the 20,000 acre family estate, Gunston Hall, which runs along the Potomac River.

Four years later, in 1750, he married16 year old Ann Eilbeck with whom he had nine surviving children.

Although he was highly respected by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, Mason never aspired to politics or a position in public office.  However, in 1776 when George Washington left Virginia to take his post as the Commander of the Continental Army, Mason was asked to take that seat in the Virginia Legislature.
