Frankfort, KY:  The Kentucky Commission on Women (KCW), an office attached to the Office of the Governor, is pleased that the Christian County Homemakers and League of Women Voters, will be hosting the 2006 KCW Pennyrile Regional Meeting on December 7, 2006 at the County Extension Office (2850 Pembroke Road) from 6-8:30 P.M.


          The meeting will focus on the regions’ progress in the areas of education, equity, leadership, economic sufficiency, health and well-being, and offer a special session on “Women and Money” presented by Myra Shultz.  “The impact of this meeting will be felt across the Commonwealth at the 2007 Governor’s Conference on Kentucky’s Women,” said Glenda R. Woods, KCW Executive Director, “We are proud to be working with the Homemakers and League to improve the status of Kentucky’s women.”  The Regional Meetings will occur in all of Kentucky’s 15 Area Development Districts during 2006.


         A 2003 Task Force report revealed that Kentucky’s women rank 49th in the percentage of women with Bachelor’s degrees, 48th in political participation, and 50th in health and well-being.  For more information on the local meeting, contact KCW Commissioner Willee Cooper- (270) 886-1565.  For more information on the work of the Commission, visit
