It Goes Unspoken: The Unseen Labor of Appalachian Women

In this meditative documentary, All Access EKY fellows Skylar Griffith and Hannah Rose Adams explore the often unseen work of women in Appalachia-- including full-time motherhood - and their demand for recognition.  For years, women have taken on the role of being “backbones” within Appalachian communities. They carry households on their shoulders, provide life and shelter, all while attempting to live up to high expectations of who they are expected to be.
