Even in today's society stereotypes falsely classify groups of people. While they're not the only group that experience prejudices, women in the Appalachia region encounter barriers in business and economic situations frequently. With this in mind the Ohio University Zanesville campus is sponsoring the "Women of Appalachia Conference" showing that women in this area are not all "toothless, barefoot and pregnant" as many may think. This is the fourth year for the conference, focusing on the heritage, culture and accomplishments of women. The Conference is a three-day event.
