INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Many young women in Marion County had the opportunity to learn more about themselves Saturday.

Girls in middle school and high school attended the Young Women’s Empowerment Conference.

The conference, hosted by the Marion Superior Court, featured workshops on subjects such as business education, body image and self defense.

A juvenile court judge, who talked to 24-Hour News 8, said he hoped the event would help cut down on the number of girls he sees in the courtroom.
