 In honor of Women's History Month, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion will host the book club, "This Land is Herland."

 Since well before ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 secured their right to vote, women in Oklahoma have sought to change and uplift their communities through political activism. "This Land Is Herland" brings together the stories of thirteen women activists and explores their varied experiences from the territorial period to the present. Organized chronologically, the essays discuss Progressive reformer Kate Barnard, educator and civil rights leader Clara Luper, and Comanche leader and activist LaDonna Harris, as well as lesser-known individuals such as Cherokee historian and educator Rachel Caroline Eaton, entrepreneur and NAACP organizer California M. Taylor, and Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) champion Wanda Jo Peltier Stapleton.

 The book club will meet March 25, and April 8, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom. Books may be purchased for 20% off the cover price at Commonplace Books in downtown Edmond. Email the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at for the Zoom link.
