Who Was Charlotte Mousel?

California Federated Republican Women -Southern Division offers a scholarship in honor of Charlotte Mousel. She was a true leader. Her life revolved around efforts to support and enhance young Republicans. She worked extensively to promote the California Advocacy Program, through which hundreds of students learned first-hand how state government operates. Under her guidance, the program became a model for other states’ programs. In her own words:

BEATITUDES of a FEDERATED WOMAN      by Charlotte Mousel

Blessed is she who stands firmly for good government, for she shall be needed

Blessed is she who works steadily for her nation, for she shall be happy

Blessed is she who believes in the causes she serves, for she shall be respected

Blessed is she who gives credit to her helpers, for she shall be successful

Blessed is she who has faith in her fellow man, for she shall be justified

Blessed is she who, when others criticize her and say all manner of evil about her,

has the strength of character to forgive, the strength of purpose to carry on,and the strength of body to continue.

For She Shall Be Called a Leader in the Federation of Republican Women.
