Operating out of Athens, Georgia since 1976, the Jeannette Rankin Foundation (founded by Jeannette herself and some admirers) assists women over age 35 in going back to school, a step that improves their lives and those of their families and communities.

IOW Producer Beth Judy talks with Sue Lawrence, Executive Director of the foundation, and also Francy Moll of Polson, Montana, a Rankin Scholarship alumna.
