To the polls, voting sisters!

Oh no, I can hear some of you say, is this going to be another shrill screed by a feminist demanding equal rights?



A National Women's Party demonstration in front of the White House in 1918. The banner protests President Woodrow Wilson’s failure to support women’s suffrage.

Question: How many statues of women in Oklahoma can you name? Besides the Pioneer Woman in Ponca City.

I can think of two: the historian Angie Debo in Stillwater and the social reformer Kate Barnard at the state Capitol. Oh yes, and the 13 ½-foot-tall bronze of a Native woman by Allan C. Houser that stands outside the Capitol. But it is not a likeness of one specific woman; it represents the everlasting strength of Native Americans. So, only three statues of women in the state.

Oh no, I can hear some of you say, is this going to be another shrill screed by a feminist demanding equal rights?

Yes. And no. More of a weary lament because it has gone on so long. The #MeToo movement pumped a burst of unimagined energy into the feminist crusade. The news of the day reminds us of two historic events: the success of the suffragists campaign 98 years ago and the failure of the Equal Rights Amendment 36 years ago. One step forward, one step nowhere.

My question about statues of Oklahoma women is my climbing aboard — my back hurts too much these days to jump aboard — the politically incorrect bandwagon. The New York Times reports that New York City is trying to redress gender inequality in public statues. Currently, New York can count a bronze of Gertrude Stein in Bryant Park, a sculpture of Eleanor Roosevelt in Riverside Park and a statue of a horseback Joan of Arc on the Upper West Side. To right this wrong, the city is considering erecting statues of Shirley Chisholm, Dorothy Day, Beverly Sills and others.

I’m starting a list of possible Oklahoma women worthy of a statue. It is a long list.

In the meantime, I’m reading “The Woman’s Hour” by Elaine Weiss, a thrilling account of the political battle to win the final state vote necessary to ratify the 18th Amendment to the Constitution granting women the right to vote. It was the culmination of a seven-decades crusade by suffragists and equally fierce opposition of the Antis, the women (and men) who opposed enfranchisement. The showdown took place in Nashville in August 1920, and who knew it was so dramatic? The American family, white supremacy and Southern traditions were at stake.

All the hot buttons of American history popped up: race, class, money, states’ rights and democracy. It was good for me to learn about some of the earnest, eloquent — and to my thinking, misguided — Antis and their fervent belief that suffrage would bring moral collapse. Why, if women had a say in government, they might influence labor reform and child labor laws. Short-haired women and long-haired men were the kind of moral degenerates who would bring about America’s downfall.

Who knew an Oklahoma suffragette died for the cause? Miss Aloysius Larch-Miller was recovering from the Spanish flu and, despite her doctor’s instructions to stay in bed, she delivered an impassioned speech at a ratification rally, went home and died two days later on Feb. 2, 1920. The state flag was flown at half-mast and Larch-Miller was honored as a “martyr to woman suffrage.” The Oklahoma legislature voted to ratify the amendment Feb. 28, 1920.

Which brings us to the ERA. Remember that from the 1970s? The proposed amendment says: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex.” Remember Phyllis Schlafly, who brought it down with her Mom and apple pie campaign?

It will take the support of 38 states to approve the amendment. In June, Illinois became the 37th. Oklahoma could cast the deciding vote for victory. I asked an expert on the Oklahoma Legislature what he thought the chances are for that. When he quit laughing, he said, “Slim.”

So here’s where we are. Women voters outnumber male voters in national elections. In 2016, 73 million women cast votes in the presidential election. And yet. The political climate makes me jumpy, and I worry that if the 18th Amendment (prohibiting liquor manufacture and sales) can be repealed, can the 19th? Can women lose the right to vote?

For now, we have it. November elections are coming our way. To the polls, sisters! 

The deadline to register before the midterm election is October 12. Register or update your info here.
