The Women of Appalachia issue

Fearless women settled Appalachia – and are still fighting for it.

Since the late 1700s, Appalachian women have stood beside men, plowing fields, putting up food, keeping the family and facing conflict.

They have lead the way through labor movements, activism, education, literature and art. They are at the forefront of protecting the Appalachian way of life, and preserving its cultural heritage.
