Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women


The Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women is an organization of women Democrat activists in Tennessee in support of the National Federation of Democratic Women. Our Democratic Women activists strongly support the Democratic Party agenda on the local, state, and nation levels.

Women Democrats support issues and causes related to feminism, civil rights, labor, healthcare, government transparency, education, technology and the environment. We actively participate online and in our communities to guard, educate and activate to make sure that individual rights are protected, equality is maintained, and bigotry doesn't win. We work to support Democrat candidates seeking to run for office, and we support Democrats that are currently in office.
The state chapter of the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women is divided into three Grand Divisions: East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee and West Tennessee. Each grand division has county chapters headed by club presidents. Every socially conscious individual, especially women, are encouraged to be active in their community, as big change often starts with a little change.

If there is not a local chapter in your respective counties, or if there are any questions, please message us, or one of our supporting pages on Facebook and twitter. Our websites/pages are monitored 24/7, in some instances. Serious inquiries WILL be responded to at the earliest opportunity. We will be more than happy to answer your questions about the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women, direct you to the appropriate person to answer any questions you may have about the National Federation of Democratic Women, Tennessee voting, politics, the Tennessee Democrat Party, National Democratic Party and/or future Democratic Party candidates seeking the presidency of the United States when applicable.

A heartfelt thank you, to everyone reaching out to our organization. Thank you, TFDW Regional Vice-Presidents for jumping right in, and getting on with the work required to move our organization forward. Thank you, to former Federation Presidents, Myra Stiles, Natalie McCullough, Betty Reddick and Jennie Carter for all of your help over the last three months. Thank you, to  TNDP Chair, Mary Mancini and National Federation of Democratic Women President, Susanna French. 

Federation members, there is so much work to be done. If you have not been asked to chair a committee, or act as a resource, I am waiting to hear from you. One of the most critical committees, YOUTH OUTREACH, has not been filled. I am waiting to hear from that dynamic Democrat that will do amazing things with it.

In this organization, everybody counts, everyone has a voice. One of my goals is to get more people involved by asking them to step-up and chair committees. That does not mean old chairs are not needed, we need you more than ever to act as resource persons to them, to our organization. I am also reaching out to former leaders in this organization that for whatever reason, are no longer with us.

Over the last several years we have lost clubs. YOU are needed to help re-organize them by developing leads for our Vice-Presidents. The mid-term elections are coming up. Identify neighborhoods in your communities where we need to focus on getting people registered to vote .... ladies, there is so much work to do. Are YOU ready to help us get it done?

Glenda F. Carter, TFDW President


The National Federation of Democratic Women was established in 1971 as a means of supporting women’s voices within the Democratic Party. The NFDW hosts national and state-level conferences and activities designed to support the extraordinary group of women who support our goals and ideals.
We have chapters in 33 states, and we look forward to hearing from women in other states about expanding our efforts. Please visit our links page where our website is listed for more information.

Federation sisters, I promised you that if you elected me Federation president, I would work hard for this organization, I am. This is not a job for the faint at heart, I am not. With that said, I could accomplish nothing without the help of my Regional Vice Presidents, supporting officers past presidents, and our wonderful club presidents across the state.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our newest Democratic Women's Club, The Madison Area Democratic Women. They are a very diverse group in every sense of the word. They are bringing an enormous amount of talent to our organization. College professors, former judiciary member, business owners, community activists, retirees, support coordinators, but most importantly, hardworking DEMOCRATS. Last night the chant was "fired-up, ready to go." I will be working closely with both clubs in Madison County.

I would also like to publicly thank West Tennessee Federation Vice President, Telise Turner, for doing an outstanding job installing the officers. Vice President Turner presented each  officer with a certificate and a red rose after swearing them in.

In West Tennessee, we are going after Henderson County next as we already have a strong leader reaching out to us in that county.

Our Middle and East Tennessee Vice Presidents are working hard as well.  There is nothing that we cannot accomplish if we continue to work together.
