     The Book of Odds, an online reference site, indicates that men are more likely than women to report witnessing UFOs.

And for decades, presenters at UFO conferences have been predominantly male -- until now. The first annual Women's UFO Symposium is gearing up to offer a new perspective and restore balance to the growing world of gatherings where people present their ideas and experiences in UFOlogy.

"Women are not on the forefront of many UFO conferences. It's kind of an old boys club," said symposium organizer Paola Harris.

"There are so many wonderful researchers out there that have literally dedicated their lives to a cause, and they deserve to balance the energy," she told The Huffington Post.

The conference will take place May 19-20, 2012 (men are welcome to attend), in Glen Rose, Texas, near the site of a well-publicized group of UFO sightings in the town of Stephenville in 2008, when hundreds of people reported different types of UFOs, triangular and disc-shaped. Some of the eyewitness accounts described unidentified craft larger than a football field.
