Mission  In 1927 The Pennsylvania Federation of Democratic Women, Inc was founded to promote the appointment and election of Democratic women to responsible positions within all branches of government, to encourage the advancement of women in both the public and private sectors, and to advocate the principles of the Democratic Party.  

Organization Today the Federation claims more than 2,000 members in local affiliates throughout the counties of the Commonwealth. These associations are grouped into 18 geographic regions, each coordinated by a director. The state Executive Board consists of a president, six vice-presidents, a treasurer, corresponding and recording secretaries, and committee chairs.  

Campaign Networking The Federation neither endorses nor backs candidates during Primary Elections. In General Elections, however, the organization actively supports the nominees and the platform of the Democratic Party.  

Political Action Committee (PAC) Funded by the Century Club and other contributors, the Federation’s PAC provides financial assistance and resources to qualified Democratic candidates for local, state, and federal offices. PFDW following our bylaws does not endorse any candidate before the primary. however our members are free to endorse candidates.

Memorial Scholarship Award The Federation award scholarships each year to women college students whose need and dedication to Democratic principles are noteworthy.  Local affiliates recommend Pennsylvania juniors at accredited colleges or universities, and the Federation chooses recipients of the scholarship. The grants are to be used during the students’ senior year.

Outstanding Elected Woman of the Year Each year the Federation honors an outstanding Democratic woman elected to public office in Pennsylvania. The honorees have made significant contributions to the Commonwealth, have supported the Federation and the Democratic party, and have consistently aided other Women seeking elective office.  

Women’s Day  Eleanor Roosevelt suggested in 1939 that a Democratic Women’s Day become an annual event. Building on Eleanor’s suggestion, each federated club in Pennsylvania is urged to celebrate Women’s Day with a fund-raising event for the benefit of the State Federation Memorial Scholarship Fund.  

Woman of the Year  Eleanor Roosevelt suggested in 1939 that a Democratic Women’s Day become an annual event. Each club and board member  is asked to nominate by March 31 a PFDW Member they feel has demonstrated exceptional dedication and meets the required criteria in the previous year. From these nominations the annual PFDW Woman of the Year is selected and is recognized at a special dinner during the Annual Convention.   

The Survey   The Federation publishes the Survey, its quarterly newspaper, and distributes copies to approximately 3,000 readers including members of the Senate and members of the House of Representatives.   

Annual Convention  The site of the Convention changes each year. The conference highlights speakers, workshops, programs, elections of officers, discussions with candidates for statewide office, and debates on state and national issues. List of convention sites

Just how well will this year�s Air Jordan gamma blue 11s retro do give that it�s a colorway we�ve never seen before? We can�t exactly imagine an Air Jordan XI sitting on shelves for too terribly long, but we have a feeling they won�t fly off shelves as quick as previous years� �Concord� and �Bred� releases. The sneakers will land a bit earlier than we�re used to seeing them-December 21st is the due date. Stay with us after the break for extra images on the �Gamma Blue� Jordan 11 gamma blue 11s and watch for them soon at shops like Nohble.
