One of the dreams that Janika Dillon is currently 'dating' is pursuing a PhD in History. In exploring this possibility, one of the people Janika wanted to learn from was Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in History, and a Harvard professor. So, she combined her dreaming with some derring-do, and asked to meet with Ms. Ulrich. Janika begins with the question: Your life's work has been to study the daily lives of women in history. What do you think is the benefit to women today in looking back? What can we learn from these women in history?
