New Acquisition

One of our most recent acquisitions is the Barbara Santee archive of Oklahoma woman’s reproductive rights and ancillary materials. Briefly stated, this is a record of over forty years of the politics of women’s reproductive rights in Oklahoma. As yet unprocessed, the 80 linear feet of documents, books and recordings should be an important addition to our Women’s Studies materials and our Oklahoma History holdings.
Barbara Santee, Ph.D., a native Tulsan, has been a life-long political activist for women’s rights and human rights. She helped establish Oklahoma’s first pro-choice group three years before abortion became legal in the US. She holds a doctorate in socio-medical sciences from Columbia University and a master’s degree in public health from the University of Michigan. Former Executive Director, Oklahoma Chapter of (NARAL), National Abortion Rights Action League.
