The Appalachian Studies Association has a long tradition of supporting Women’s Rights. In accordance with our mission we are ‘driven to a commitment to foster quality of life, democratic participation and appreciation of Appalachian experiences regionally, nationally, and internationally.’ This quality of life includes our strong belief in women, trans men, and nonbinary folx having control over their reproductive rights. We hear your frustration, are empathetic to this continual struggle, and stand with you. From the women who stood their ground in the unions, against mountaintop removal, and continue to fight this fight for justice, we are with you. We will be having a meet up soon to join together in conversation that will be guided by recent research and advocacy work on Reproductive Rights. Stay tuned for information coming soon.
