Florida Women Journalist & Politics
May 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This presentation is the final in a series of eight Ormond Beach Historical Society’s 2021-22 Speaker Series programs. The discussion will explore the role of women in 1950s advertising based on the television show Mad Men, and the history of food journalism in newspapers during the 1940s through the 1970s. It also focuses the experiences of pioneering women’s editors which allows for a better perspective of women in journalism today and adds to women’s history scholarship. Women’s pages of newspapers was the only place that most women could work in journalism for decades, and these journalists contributed to the women’s liberation movement and the journalism community.
Kimberly Voss (University of Central Florida) is a professor and author of several books about women in mass media. Her book “The Food Section” earned the 2014 Award for Service to Food Journalism from the Association of Food Journalists.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Ormond Beach Historical Society.
