Oklahoma Women's Caucus

The Oklahoma Women's Caucus: Together we can find common ground on more issues than not, and work to make a difference on issues that affect women in our state.

"..the caucus is bipartisan — meaning it’s not the red or the blue that matters but rather an effort to improve the state’s treatment of women." - Susan Ellerbach, Tulsa World

TULSA VOICE: What the Teachers Want: Oklahoma educators step out of the classroom and into the 57th Legislature

”The word “representative” is especially appropriate for this new crop of lawmakers, as a legislative body represents the people who put them in office in the first place. So what does the 57th Legislature say about the Oklahoma voters who put them there last November? For many, the message cuts across party lines.”

“When I went to Oklahoma City [for the walkout] and found myself not in the company of a few but well over 50,000, I realized that education is not a Democratic issue or a Republican issue. It’s an Oklahoman issue,” Provenzano said. “We all recognized the crisis we are in and worked together to affect real change.”

USA Today: I'm an educator who ran for office and won: Here's how I did it.

In the last few weeks, I have met many of my new peers and co-workers. I am inspired by the positive energy and palatable sense of hope in Oklahoma on both sides of the political aisle. Making a better tomorrow does not happen overnight and it’s not without bumps along the way, but we are on the right path.

I encourage you to follow the work of your representatives. Stay connected. Use your voice. Tell your story.
