In this ONR, we look at Oklahoma's ongoing water wars. While the Supreme Court has handed down a ruling on the case between Oklahoma and Texas, more arguments over water are brewing, and these pit Oklahoman against Oklahoman. Water has been a huge boon to the state's wheat crop, which has experienced a huge turnaround from its previously dreary expectations due to recent rains. Oklahoma is home to more than 30 recognized tribes, and each has it's own way to determine who is or is not a member. ONR's Lis Exon explains. Plus, immigration bills and healthcare access, 50 years of the Equal Pay Act, a look at Tulsa's revived downtown and more on this ONR.

Invisible Eve

The rate of incarceration of women in Oklahoma is 134 per 100,000, compared to the national average of 69 per 100,000. There are many reasons for that staggering number, and many problems it causes for children, families and the state, as a whole. The book "Invisible Eve" takes a fresh look at Oklahoma's women in prison, and here to talk about it are the book's photographer and author, Yousef Khanfar; Susan F. Sharp, David Ross Boyd Professor of Sociology at the University of Oklahoma; and, Kela Miller, former prison inmate and one of the women featured in "Invisible Eve."
