The Oklahoma Hall of Fame believes there are no limits to what is possible. Every day we celebrate the legacy of inspiring Oklahomans with all generations, because Oklahomans are changing the world. Changemakers are those who inspire and enact change in their communities. They can come from anywhere and can be anyone. This gallery features seven women who have inspired meaningful change in Oklahoma and beyond: Rita Bly Aragon, Gloria Twine Chisum, Jerrie Cobb, Clara Luper, Wilma Mankiller, Shannon Miller, and Alfre Woodard. All are from vastly different backgrounds and have worked in a variety of fields, including aviation, education, civic leadership, civil rights, sports, health, philanthropy, science, and the performing arts.
The stories of these seven women show the impact a changemaker can have and the characteristics that the Oklahoma Hall of Fame celebrates: optimism, generosity, perseverance, individualism, and pioneer spirit. This exhibit seeks to inspire future changemakers with the stories of these amazing women, an interactive activity, and a virtual exhibit for further enrichment.
