150 Women Lawyers Plan Brigade to Oklahoma Capitol Over Teacher Pay

A group of 150 women attorneys is set to descend upon the Oklahoma State Capitol on April 9 to help negotiate a deal between lawmakers and teachers over school-funding woes.

Teacher walkouts across the state since April 2 have ground schools to a halt, prompting Tulsa lawyer Becki Murphy to organize the group, made up mostly of women lawyers with children. The effort has received support from men attorneys as well, she said.

“It puts heat on this legislature to get something done,” said Murphy, whose practice focuses on family law.
