All Democratic Women’s Clubs in the State of West Virginia may become members of this organization: provided, however, that each club’s purposes and activities are in harmony with the principles and program of the Democratic Party: that each club should be organized within its county or metropolitan area: that each club must have and maintain twenty-five (25) or more paid voting members who are registered as Democrats in their county.
The Federation is chartered through the Secretary of States office which makes it a political entity of its own, empowered to work through and with the State Executive Committee. Thus, membership in the Federation removes clubs from local political factional struggles at the county level.
One of the chief advantages of belonging to the Federation is the bonding of women for common purposes. It gives clubs a sense of identity larger than that created by being a single entity. In turn, the Federations identity is enhanced by belonging to the National Federation of Democratic Women.
