The Cameo Life Stories Questionnaire was designed to 1) guide women in writing about their lives and 2) provide a standardized set of questions specifically geared to women. It was developed with input from historians, educators, writers, homemakers, executives, older women, young women, mothers, single women and women with a wide range of religious affiliations, ethnic backgrounds, experiences and financial means. The numbered questions are intended to assist women’s history scholars in their research.
