In this podcast, Tia Shah explores the power of food in Indian culture. As she states, "Our personal, political, commercial, socio-cultural and psychological relationship with food reflects how we see ourselves; our roles in society and the home, and also how we see others and their roles. Food can crucially be used to define and bolster gender roles, but I will also explore how food can be used to resist oppression and to demonstrate conflict. In particular, I want to talk about how the preparation, serving and eating of food is linked to women and specific gender roles in India. My interest in this topic has sprung from my research for Girl Museum’s Girl Child of India exhibition. This new exhibition is all about what is like being a girl in India "

Join us to ring in the new year with a reflection on girls, power, and history. Are we still haunted by ghosts over 300 years old? What does one of America’s first memories say about women and politics today? And as we head into 2019, are we willing to claim our place as the granddaughters of witches? Tiffany explores this and more in our latest episode, with a little help from Associate Editor Sage and her “No Time for Fear” column.

IDG 2019: Girls in Museums

IDG 2019: Girls in Museums

2018-10-1000:16:22

From Boston to Lexington to London, it’s clear that girls are in museums all around us. Yet their stories are often only footnotes - if they are mentioned at all. And when girls do take center stage, it is often in the context of their adult lives or, very rarely, a treat to those of us looking for them.That’s why Girl Museum celebrates each Day of the Girl by looking at how girls are represented in museums around the world. However, our work isn’t limited to just today. We work tirelessly everyday, as an all-volunteer team, using our free time to create exhibitions and projects, review museums, and even bring you this podcast - all in the hopes of increasing girls’ representation in museums and fostering a more inclusive, gender equal world.

For as little as $1 per month, you can help support our work in perpetuity and expand our reach across the globe.
