About

Texas Tea Party Republican Women was formed in 1993 when three Republican women ~ Peggy Cox, Susan Darbyshire and Elvie Kingston recognized the need for an active conservative women’s organization working to preserve traditional pro-life, pro-family Republican views. the name, Texas Tea Party Republican Women (TTPRW) was coined to embody the theme from the Boston Tea Party of:

“No Taxation Without Representation”

The Boston Tea Party was a raid by American colonist on three British ships in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773. The colonists determined not to pay taxes to the British government.  A band of citizens disguised as  Mohawk Indians threw the contents of 342 chests of tea into the bay (approximately $1 million worth in today’s dollars). This was one of the incidents that lead to the Revolutionary War in America.
