Welcome to the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women (OCSW). We are a non-partisan state Commission, and we help enable women to make their maximum contribution to society. We do not provide direct services; instead, we inform and educate the Legislature, Executive, and Oklahoma citizens about women’s issues. We partner with other organizations and agencies statewide to provide resource information, expertise and input on women’s issues.
OCSW provides leadership and direction. We celebrate the successes of Oklahoma women and encourage women in leadership. Our Appointments Project (TAP), located under membership, directly assists women who apply for appointments on state boards and commissions.
Our LINKs establishes a registry of Commission recognized Oklahoma professional associations and organizations for the advancement of women.
Through the work of its members, OCSW helps Oklahoma women live healthier, more productive and prosperous lives. OCSW hosts the following events:
Our meetings are open to the public and are held on the fourth Thursday of each month, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Current meeting locations are listed below.

OCSW Celebrate the Impact Women in Oklahoma Have Made Over the Years
The Celebrating Women Luncheon hosted by Governor Mary Fallin was held Tuesday, October 31, 2017 at the Phillips Pavilion, located on the Governor's Mansion grounds. The event was held to honor women who are Champions for Women. This years honoree was Nancy Miller, veteran television series producer of Against the Wall, Saving Grace, Leaving L.A., The Closer and Any Day Now. Miller set Saving Grace in her hometown of Oklahoma City that profiled an Oklahoma woman. Miller’s body of work features mostly female-centric shows. The award is presented to individuals, corporations, organizations and/or institutions that promote the advancement and empowerment of women in Oklahoma.
