Blue Ridge Public Radio is partnering with Foxfire Mountain Heritage Museum to launch a campaign to collect oral histories about women in Appalachia. The effort coincides with the release of a new book, The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Women: Stories of Landscape and Community in the Mountain South.

Do you have a story about a woman in Appalachia? We want to hear from you! If you live in Central/Southern Appalachia, or are from the region, consider sharing your experiences as a woman through a self-recorded oral history, journal entry, or visual media.
