2007 Women's Legislative Day

I am late reporting that this conference on March 7 was outstanding! Kudos to the women's groups (see below) who put it together. Speakers included former State Senator Angela Monson on women's health issues, AAUW Regional Director Shirley Breeze on current women's equity issues, YWCA of Oklahoma City CEO Jan Perry (left) on current legislation for women and children, and much more. The non-partisan coalition that organizes this day each year in made up of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, American Association of University Women, the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Alliance of Girl Scout Councils, the Oklahoma Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, the YWCA of Oklahoma City and the YWCA of Tulsa. They'll host a day at the Capitol again in March of 2008; promise yourself that you'll attend. It is worth it!
