Welcome to


Bartlesville Women's Network

Taproots is the Transcription of the Oral History Project of Bartlesville Women's Network. In Taproots we have published interviews with dozens of outstanding Bartlesville women.

Our interviewees include many women you may already know. We've interviewed teachers, scientists, homemakers, and politicians: women who have in some way made a difference, in Bartlesville and beyond. You probably have no idea all the great things they've been up to!

So read Taproots . . . and discover a new perspective on Bartlesville history.
