3 Women Make “50 Most Powerful” List

FRIDAY, the newspaper of Nichols Hills, has issued its annual list of the 50 most powerful Oklahomans. A list is sent to 250 statewide leaders (not themselves on the list) who are asked to select the 50 they consider most powerful. Individuals can also be written in. I suspect the vast majority of the voters are men who live in Central Oklahoma and are Republican. Of the 50 selected this year, there may be one or two who can claim some Native American blood but there are no blacks or Hispanics and only 3 women – Christy Everest, Mary Fallin and Kathy Taylor. To view the list of 50, click here.

  1. Aside from yourself - who was left off the list? Who should have been candidates?
