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.

Women in Recovery

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma continues to send more women to prison than any other state. 63 percent of them suffer from substance abuse. Despite treatment in prison, many of the women get out, start using again and eventually end up back behind bars. A relatively new therapy is looking at addiction from a gender based perspective. It explores women's childhood traumas as the springboard to their cycle of drug and alcohol abuse.

Addiction Treatment & OK Watch (13:20)

Oklahoma continues to send more women to prison than any other state. 63 percent of them suffer from substance abuse. Despite treatment in prison, many of the women get out, start using again and eventually end up back behind bars. A relatively new therapy is looking at addiction from a gender based perspective. It explores women's childhood traumas as the springboard to their cycle of drug and alcohol abuse. According to the institute for child advocacy there are 27,000 children of incarcerated parents in Oklahoma. Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oklahoma finds mentors to help these children break the inter-generational cycle of crime through the "Amachi" program. However due to federal budget cuts that program is now in jeopardy. We spoke with Jaclyn Cosgrove who is covering this issue for Oklahoma Watch.

Women in Leadership (13:06)

Featured in Top Stories

A generation after the peak of women's liberation, women nationally make up more than 50% of the workforce and 57% of students attending college. Academically and in both low and mid-level jobs women often out-perform men. But, in Oklahoma the number of women in top leadership positions in business and politics is still low. While several factors hold women back, the next generation - the so-called millennials -- is poised to shatter the glass ceiling. Also, Dick Pryor spoke with former state representative, Dr. Laura Boyd, who was the first female nominee for Governor in 1998 and was the democratic nominee for Lieutentant Governor in 2002. And, Major General Rita Aragon, the first female commander of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, who currently is Oklahoma's Secretary of Military and Veterans Affairs.

Mabel Bassett Reintegration (4:23)

Featured in Top Stories

When it comes to putting women behind bars, Oklahoma tops the nation. Actually, per capita, our state incarcerates more women than any other state, or country, in the world. Now, the department of corrections is working to keep as many of the current female prison inmates from coming back into the system as possible, by helping them identify a new way of life. Budget cuts have reduced reintegration programs over the past few years, but programs still in place are working. Oklahoma's female recidivism rate is 14-percent. That's much better than in Texas and Arkansas, where about 20-percent of released inmates return to prison.
