Cuts to Oklahoma military bases have cost more than a thousand positions so far, but much bigger cutbacks are still possible if congress fails to act. As the nation marks "sunshine week", advocates of open government step up efforts to increase transparency at the state capitol.

A crusader for gender equity in the workplace talks about her fight for equal pay. And we look at how design, art, and risk-taking combine to drive the passion of one Oklahoman entrepreneur.

Newsmaker Interview Lilly Ledbetter Part 1

Featured in Top Stories

March is Women's History Month. This week, a woman who recently achieved a place in American history came to Oklahoma to tell her story of fighting for equal pay. After Lilly Ledbetter learned she was making forty percent less than male managers at a Goodyear tire plant in Alabama, she took her case to court. Ten years later, and after losing at the U.S. Supreme Court, she turned out to be a winner when congress passed, and the president signed, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act...a law that re-instated a long-standing portion of the equal pay act that the Supreme Court had changed. We spoke with Lilly Ledbetter on Thursday, International Women's Day.
