Fresh Talk: Plated Politics
Sunday, September 26, 2021, 4:30 PM until 6:00 PM
Public Event of Interest
Despite recent decades of feminist activism and increasing gender equity, women are still disproportionately responsible for domestic tasks, including managing family meals and nutrition. Yet the culinary industry—professionalized cooking—is predominantly male. In this FRESH TALK, speakers explore what happens when “women’s work” doesn’t necessarily uplift women and how women within and outside of the culinary industry can forge a new path forward. Speakers include culinary historian, professor, and author Jessica B. Harris; food critic, chef, podcast host, and author Soleil Ho; chef, author, and founder of Black Culinary History Thérèse Nelson; and culinary historian Laura Shapiro. The conversation will be livestreamed on the National Museum of Women in the Arts’s Facebook page and nmwa.org/livestream. This program is available for free to the public, but if you would like to support the museum, please consider making a $10 donation. Hosted by the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
