The women worked the marine waterways throughout British Columbia, from the Queen Charlottes and Prince Rupert in the north, to Rainy Bay on the west coast, and the Lower Mainland to the south. As an outcome of her interviews, Jensen decided to broaden the focus of the project from a look at interesting individuals to include the role and impact of maritime women both in BC and nationally.;The fonds is arranged into three series: Interview transcripts (1.1 Worked on fishing boats, and 1.2 Worked on non-fishing boats); Photographs and negatives; and Interview tapes.;Records in the fonds consist of interview cassette tapes and corresponding transcripts, and photographs taken by Jensen for use in the book.
