Explore paths for discovering women’s history in your own family history! Join culinary historian Lavada Nahon as she shares some of the most important historical resources that her mother passed down—some of her ‘artifacts’ might surprise you! Flip through antique recipe cards and books, take a look at Lavada’s apron, and learn about other overlooked household items that tell important stories for living historians like Lavada.
Even though Lavada focuses on women’s legacies at home, don’t forget to ask her for tips on finding fascinating women’s contributions to history outside the home, too. And before you go, share an heirloom, story, or memory of women’s history in your own family!
