For several years Dr. Veeder has been interested in how women go about making decisions in their daily lives. A good deal of research has been done about how men make decisions. The bulk of the work about how men make decisions has been done because men have most frequently been in public decision-making situations, such as in their work, politics, or as heads of families. Very little research has focused upon how women make decisions. What little research has been done on women and decision-making indicates that women make decisions which take different things into account than do men. So, we are interested in trying to understand just exactly how a woman goes about making decisions, both small and large, in her own everyday life. I just want you to tell me about this in your own words. I'll start out by asking you about what were major decisions in different areas in your life. Keep in mind that I have no idea whatsoever about what are, or should be, "important" decisions in women's lives. I just want you to tell me what you consider your important decisions. Finally at the end, I will ask you a few questions about you and your family in relation to age, education, and occupation. Shall we begin?
