Oklahoma Matters

Equal representation for women in Oklahoma is critical.

Women currently make up 21.5% of Oklahoma’s legislative body yet represent over half of the general population.

We are here
to change that.

Sally’s List is committed to creating a future where Oklahoma’s Legislature adequately reflects those it serves. For years, short-sighted decisions, lack of fiscal responsibility, and inequitable policies have left Oklahomans at the bottom and top of the wrong lists. Until women have a place at the table, they will continue to be the ones who bear the weight of unjust policies.

THIS IS NOT WHAT OUR STATE STANDS FOR.

Oklahoma ranks 48th in the nation overall for women’s health, economic opportunity, and leadership. Across the board, women are suffering; from high incarceration rates and low teacher pay, to a lack of health insurance and access to primary care physicians. While these issues are not gender-specific, it is women who are most often affected by them.

OKLAHOMA IS BETTER THAN THIS.

These embarrassing statistics are only compounded by the fact that Oklahoma is facing a record budget shortfall, defunding vital programs that invest in the state’s most vulnerable. Our current economy favors big businesses over working-class people and families, while policies continue to neglect core services like education, healthcare, and infrastructure. We need elected officials who are committed to taking care of all Oklahomans.

WHEN WOMEN RUN,
EVERYONE WINS.

OKLAHOMA PROGRESS

WE SEE PROGRESS IN OKLAHOMA WHEN:

  • Regular citizens and professionals collaborate on best practices and policies.
  • Businesses, nonprofits, and individuals encourage lawmakers to vote against  hateful and discriminatory legislation, thereby protecting Oklahoma’s economy and its people.
  • Oklahomans are able to access comprehensive services for themselves and their communities, whether it be healthcare or education.
