Jul 15, 2022 | Episode 493 | 31:02
In this episode, I'm diving into the content of The Secret History of Home Economics by Danielle Dreilinger. This is a meaty book and a fascinating read!  Home Economics was the path that was created for women to enter college and earn college degrees.

It was about the study of food properties and diets as well as experiments with bacteria, standardization of clothing measurements, and so much more.
