A group of women who have held public office in Oklahoma say it is important for more women to become involved in politics.
At a meeting of the Norman Chamber of Commerce on Friday, the women set aside politics to underscore the need to add women's opinions and viewpoints to the public debate.
Former Lt. Gov. Jari Askins says state decisions that impact families need to have a female perspective.
State Rep. Leslie Osborn says there is no glass ceiling at the Legislature, but that not enough women are running for office.
