Women lawmakers are more likely to work across the aisle, listen to the concerns of everyone they represent, build better alliances, and effectively pass legislation. Women change the conversation, they change the landscape, and they change the agenda – crafting and passing legislation that improves the lives of everyone in their communities. Simply put, women get more done.
Women in Oklahoma are severely underrepresented. Though women are 51% of the overall population, women make up only 14% of our state legislature. That ranks Oklahoma at 48th in the nation.
Sally’s List is determined to see equal representation in Oklahoma’s State Legislature. Our vision is to see a state political system that supports its people in health, education, and a strong economy.
We accomplish this by recruiting, training, and getting progressive women elected to office in Oklahoma. Since 2010, Sally’s List has prepared candidates and campaign staff to run viable campaigns, and advocated for progressive change in Oklahoma. A nonpartisan organization, Sally’s List seeks out women who know the importance of investing in public education, healthcare, a strong economy and other community-building issues.
Our training and mentorship programs help women remove the barriers to making an impact on their communities.
