OKLAHOMA CITY – The impact on policy by women political leaders is the subject of this month's Practice & Policy Lecture Series presented by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS). Women in Politics: What it Means for Policy and Leadership will be presented by OU Professor Emeritus Cindy Rosenthal on Jan. 8, 2019 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City.
Rosenthal served on the Norman city council for 12 years before voters elected her to three terms as mayor. She is the former director of the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center at the University of Oklahoma and currently a professor emeritus of women's and gender studies and political science.
The Practice & Policy Lecture Series has been developed to provide thought-provoking presentations on Oklahoma's emerging policy issues, trends and best practices.
