The interviews are listed below as well as featured in an OurBlook online book, which includes an introduction by class professor and former director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Pamela Creedon, and Virginia Commonwealth University professor and former reporter, June Nicholson. The goal of the interview series is to familiarize the students with the challenges women in online communications face, as well as what made them successful.
