These lessons are based on the Women of the Oklahoma Legislature Oral History Project. They are provided courtesy of the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program (OOHRP) at the Oklahoma State University Library with generous support from the Women's Archives at OSU and the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women. The curriculum was created by Dr. Linda Henshall Wilson of Northeastern State University and Latasha Wilson of the OOHRP.
The Women of the Oklahoma Legislature is one of many projects undertaken by the OOHRP. This oral history project captures and records information about female Oklahoma legislators in their own voices and provides an opportunity to reflect on their individual paths to the Capitol. It also documents more completely the presence of these women in state government.
The OOHRP invites you to use these lesson plans to introduce students to this group of women who have played such an important role in Oklahoma politics.
