On Monday, more than 100 women are expected to march almost a mile from the Oklahoma Bar Association to the state Capitol in Oklahoma City to aid negotiations between legislators and educators. asked why this is an all-female effort, Murphy said that started as a result of the original call in the Oklahoma female attorneys’ Facebook group. However, as it progressed, she said it became an important element. “If I said a hundred women are going to descend on the courthouse…I felt like that would get their attention,” Murphy said.
