Women in Athens County 2013

For the 21st year, The Athens NEWS presents its "Women in Athens County" section. This special section gathers responses from women throughout Athens County to questions about important - and some more humorous - issues. Once again our staff put a list of 13 questions online during much of September and called upon our female readers, athensnews.com users and Facebook friends to offer their point of view.
