I am delighted to have this great opportunity to work on the JAWS Oral History Project this year. This project aims to document and explore the professional careers, work experiences and associational life of women journalists who have actively participated in JAWS. Based on the oral history interviews we will collect, we would like to 1) explore historically the opportunities, obstacles and strategies for women to advance a career in journalism; 2) to understand how women journalists' professional identities have been shared and shaped through their participation in gender-based associations such as JAWS.
