The theoretical part of the project is to develop the biographies of the participants. A matrix with personal information is set up as the basis for formulating the biographical records: there are around 300 words on separate sheets of paper, which the women select, cut out, and assign to a specific age.

Next, there is a discussion with the women about why they have chosen these particular words. At issue here are the women’s individual experiences and what the terms actually mean to them. On the basis of the information obtained the biographical record is then formulated.
