- Well Structured
New York Times columnist Gail Collins starts with the colonial period and concludes in the present, presenting an array of anecdotes about women, aging and events across time. Her methodical research unearths surprising facts about women’s expectations for their lives and livelihood prior to the 2oth century. Collins is an accomplished cultural historian, and her focus on women and aging provides a lens for better understanding how US society perceives women and their roles, and how that has and hasn’t changed, at work and beyond.
