Women of the Oklahoma Legislature

Women of the Oklahoma Legislature



Throughout Oklahoma's history 77 women have been elected to the state's legislature.

The Women of the Oklahoma Legislature oral history project at the OSU Library

presents first-hand accounts of the journeys of these women to and through the

Oklahoma Legislature.


The goals of the project are to fill a gap in the historical record, supplement and

complement the OSU Library's Women's Archives Collection, support the Women's

Studies program, and to create a resource for all of the citizens of Oklahoma. Taken

individually, these interviews reflect the careers and interests of the women; taken

collectively they constitute a narrative of the role of women in the Oklahoma

Legislature over time. The interviews cover such topics as campaign strategies,

issues championed, a day in the life of a state legislator, as well as memories of

their swearing in days and their first experiences with presenting a bill on the

chamber floor.
