think.kera.org 1

The field of home economics often conjures images of domesticity, not training women for revolutionary roles in the workplace. Danielle Dreilinger joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how these courses opened doors for women outside the home, vaulting them to careers as scientists, businesswomen, professors and more. Her book is “The Secret History of Home Economics: How Trailblazing Women Harnessed the Power of Home and Changed the Way We Live.”
