Appalachian women have always been strong figures. Our annual list of Wonder Women showcases women who bring that mountain spirit to everything from technology and manufacturing to activism and law, proving that superheroes don’t have to be superhuman. Every year at an annual luncheon and award ceremony, we celebrate 50 women who, through hard work and determination, have made our state a better place to live.
