Missouri State University is hosting a Statewide Collaborative Diversity Conference, during which it will teach students that labeling women as ‘blonde’ is a form of identity theft that immobilizes them.

As part of a statewide conference, hosted by Missouri State University in Springfield, a lecture titled “ That’s a blonde remark: Gendered communication in the workplace,” aims to educate students on how, “ Labels like “blonde” function as a form of identity theft, designed to reduce the recipient’s possibilities for action and immobilize others who embody the same characteristics. “
