Hall’s goal is to change the ways that we think about women designers. And to achieve this, she conducted comprehensive research, reading books and journals, and visiting various exhibitions in order to get more information. In addition, the author talked with historians, biographers, family members, and friends of designers to better understand the ways shaped not only in our homes but in society.
