Women Can’t Serve on Oklahoma Juries
Oklahoma City, Ok. Jan. 12- Following the constitutional provision on the subject, Attorney General Freeling has ruled that women cannot legally sit upon a jury in any court in the state. A statue on the subject specifies that juries must be composed of “male” persons. It is agreed that another legislative act could change this, but a legislative act could not permit women to be members of a jury because of the constitutional provision that cannot be changed except by a vote of the people.
