Wake County Republican Women's Club was  born from a group of non-partisan women in Wake County who were all for General Dwight Eisenhower in 1952.   In January 1953, when General Eisenhower became President Eisenhower, ten women broke away from the majority democrat organization and became the Wake County Republican Women's Club.   The club was one of the original chartered members of the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women.  The women who chartered the Wake County Republican Women's Club were Helen Lehew, Reva Rothrock and Beatrice Summers.  

​Today we continue with the objectives set forth in 1953:

Promote political activity through eduction;

To increase the effectiveness of women in the participation of federal, state and local government;

Promote candidates in elections including non-partisan elections;

To work for the election for the Republican Party's nominees.
