Poet Sandy Coomer writes of Women Speak Volume Six: “Despite the educational and economic inequalities in Appalachia, despite the lack of adequate healthcare and jobs, despite the lack of infrastructure, there are women, such as these, who have contributed to the Women Speak anthology, standing in defiance, their words and art like steel girders. [ . . . ] These are offerings of survival and strength. Despite all the forces set in place to silence them, these beautiful, fierce women speak and in their voices and truths, there is no lack at all.”
