Project Description: Dr. Billson will be interviewing women to find out how their lives and jobs have changed in the last 100 years. The information that she collects will be sent back to the women that she interviewed to make sure that what she recorded was correct. The information will become one chapter in a book on women and it will also be used for part of a course on "Women in Society" that Dr. Billson teaches at Rhode Island College.
