Welcome to My Friends are My Heroes: The Stories of Empowered West Virginia Women. This project was created to acknowledge and appreciate the women of West Virginia who work to make our state a better place to live, work, and play.
The women of this state deserve to be put in the spotlight, especially since most don’t receive the proper recognition they deserve.
This project and the interviews on this website are meant to show others that these women aren’t simply “activists” or “tree-huggers”. These women are heroes, role models, friends, mothers, and your average, busy West Virginians.
We hope you enjoy this website, learn more about our heroes, and start to think of these fine women as your heroes as well.
