Performing Arts

Mia Cantu
The Mayans obviously had it wrong: The end of the world is actually in April. Cause of demise? Alien rock music. For proof, you need only join in the fun of the rock musical King GuitArthur and the Drüggs. It features an apocalypse, original songs and glitter.

For women

OKC native Kristin Davis returns to the state to head the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition.


News

Mia Cantu

In 2004, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research ranked Oklahoma fourth among the worst states for women. That statistic motivates members of the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition (OWC), which since its 2007 inception has advocated for policies that improve women’s lives. To further its efforts, the nonprofit last month hired its first executive director, Kristin Davis.
