About WOAP

Many people have an image of an Appalachian woman, and they look down on her. The mission of WOAP is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to the Appalachian region as a source of inspiration, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds, ages and, experiences to embrace the stereotype—show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her.
