Discover the secrets of women's history by learning about the late-nineteenth and twentieth century trailblazers who used chemistry, marketing, engineering, and resilience to develop the academic discipline centered around living well: Home Economics. The subject that is now often regarded as an easy A in high school is truly nothing of the sort. It was a Trojan horse disguised as domestication, filled with women who were eager to carve out space in the then male-dominated world of science, and who did just that, becoming pioneers of food safety and nutrition, childhood development, and cleaning solutions, and, notably, establishing the Betty Crocker name. Embark on this fascinating journey, closely following the footsteps of these revolutionaries and uncovering the secrets behind the scientific subject that made a house into a home. (HC)
