Florida Food in the Golden Era of Women’s Page Journalism

Wednesday, March 9 @ 2 pm

“Florida Food, Drink & Women’s Journalism,” Florida’s women’s pages – the only place for women in journalism in the 1950s and 1960s – were considered the best in the country. The women in these sections explained Florida food and drink as the state grew. Using backgrounds in home economics, they explained changing tastes in local and national dishes, dessert trends and restaurant reviews. Featured journalists: Jeanne Voltz, Jane Nickerson and Ruth Gray – pioneering food journalists.

About the presenter: Kimberly Voss, PhD-Maryland, is a full professor of journalism at the University of Central Florida. She has published four books about women and mass media – many of the journalists from Florida. She researches journalism in the 1950s and 1960s, newspaper food history and fashion journalism, as well as political clubwomen and the Equal Rights Amendment in Florida.
