The following article, an example of student work, was sent in by Anne R. Barrett, Coordinator of the Women's Studies Nursing Home Education Project sponsored by the Women's Studies Program at the University of New Hampshire. Written by one of the elderly participants in the project, the essay, Barrett feels, "captures the spirit of our program most eloquently."
Barrett reports that she and her colleagues "are absolutely delighted with the outcome of the project. It is even more successful than we had originally anticipated. The average age of our students is 87, and we have added a new course this semester (at their request): New England Women's History." She adds that she "would be happy to provide detailed information to anyone interested, including a list of possible funding sources."
