Sally's List recruits and trains progressive women to run for the Oklahoma state legislature. Register to attend an upcoming event.
At Sally’s List, our mission is crystal clear; recruit and train progressive women to run for the Oklahoma state legislature. Women do not instinctively feel qualified to seek elected office and it is not a decision they necessarily come to on their own. However, when actively recruited and educated in the campaign process, they become enthusiastic and disciplined candidates. Studies show that when women run for office, they win in equal numbers to men. It’s not that Oklahomans don’t want to vote for women. There just aren’t enough female candidates for whom to vote.
Sally’s List was founded in response to two alarming trends. First, at 12.8%, Oklahoma ranks 49th nationally in female representation at the state legislative level. Second, Oklahoma ranks as one of the unhealthiest states in the country for women’s health. This is hardly a coincidence. Studies show that female state legislators consistently create and pass legislation that improves the lives of women. Our woefully outnumbered female legislators are fighting a losing battle when it comes to addressing women’s issues from a woman’s point of view.
