In the 1960's Democratic Women's Clubs formed in Georgia and across the Nation. In the 1970's, The National Federation of Democratic Women formed and became the official Women's Organization of the Democratic National Committee. The GFDW formed in 1976 and joined the NFDW as an affiliate chapter in 1976. We remain affiliated with the NFDW and we share the vision of the DNC and the DPG.
