Image that says Remarkable Women of Oklahoma

Remarkable women are everywhere. We want to celebrate them!

KFOR wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Throughout Women’s History Month, KFOR will highlight four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

One woman will be named Oklahoma’s Woman of the Year!

From the more than 100 local winners, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!

Take a look at the Remarkable Women featured during the last contest for 2021 below.
