Fixing DHS Pinnacle Plan

Featured in Top Stories

When children are hurt or killed, the Department of Human Services is often put under the microscope. What receives little attention are the challenges the agency faces trying to protect Oklahoma’s most vulnerable citizens. Now DHS faces the challenge of a complete overhaul in the eye of intense scrutiny.

Women's History Month

Featured in Top Stories

March is Women's History Month. In Oklahoma, one organization has worked to improve the quality of life for women for over a century, especially rural women. It got its start in 1910 under the name, "The Home Demonstration Club." Over the years the clubs helped hundreds of thousands of women in all 77-counties learn leadership and practical skills to make life better in their communities and homes.

Lilly Ledbetter 2

Featured in Top Stories

For nineteen years, Lilly Ledbetter worked at the Goodyear tire plant in Gadsden, Alabama. She rose to manager, received regular pay raises and earned a top performer award. Little did she know she was making 40% less than her male counterparts...until she received an anonymous note. That prompted a lawsuit and a ten year legal battle that culminated with a change in the law, giving women a better chance to receive equal pay for equal work. Lilly Ledbetter achieved a rare distinction: she fought back against the U.S. Supreme Court, and won, and saw the new law named in her honor. We recently spoke with Lilly Ledbetter about her battle for women's rights. Lilly Ledbetter’s story is detailed in her new memoir, "Grace and Grit: My Fight For Equal Pay and Fairness At Goodyear and Beyond."
