Mountain Women Rising
A Performance Presentation of the Appalachian Women's Alliance

Come with us on a journey through the mountains as Alliance members and Appalchian artists weave a tapestry of women's lives through poetry and prose, story and song.

Experience the struggles and triumphs of Appalachian women from diverse cultures and communities. Learn about the Alliance's work for human rights and dignity, economic justice, and safety for women and children. Join with us as we sing songs of civil rights and environmental healing.

Mountain Women Rising is a 45-60 minute presentation on the work and issues of the Appalachian Women's Alliance. An excellent educational experience appropriate for classes in social studies, women's studies, and Appalachian studies, the performance can also be supplemented with workshops on related issues and art forms.  

From classrooms to women's shelters, conferences to festivals, live performances to video and audio experiences, Mountain Women Rising will enlighten, inform and entertain.
