Oklahoma women have always been pioneers: among the first to rush forth to advance their culture and their power in the world. They are the pioneers that first charged into the 1889 Land Run of April 22nd. They are the pioneers that first fought for and won the vote for women. They are the pioneers that became the first lawyers, judges, doctors, generals, mayors, governors, and they continue to brave new territories today.
