Nashville Women Make History
Nashville is celebrating the centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution. Find Centennial Celebrations around the city to visit virtually or attend. The Tennessee State Museum commemorates the Centennial with Ratified! —artifacts, documents, large-scale graphics, videos, interactive elements and public programming to share the stories of the Tennesseans who came to have decisive roles in American women’s struggle to gain voting rights. At the Main Nashville Public Library, Votes for Women is a new, permanent exhibit. Hear Margaret Behm and Jeanie Nelson discuss the exhibit and the story of Suffragettes. Attend the Votes for Women Virtual Grand Opening scheduled for Aug 18th. The Nashville Scene dedicated an issue to our Suffragette City they recognized the Tennessee women who fought for the right to vote — and considered those who continue the battle today. And the NCVC has list of 100 Nashville women, so there's that, too.

Who better to tell us where to eat, drink, and celebrate during our next trip to San Francisco?

Nashville Kitchen Confidential
In an excerpt from her memoir “Our Lady of Perpetual Hunger,” pastry chef Lisa Dononvan recounts the career influence of another woman: Nashville chef and restaurant owner Margot McCormack. Donovan’s first job at McCormack’s Margot Café is a far cry from her time at her first steady restaurant job at TradeWinds, a “22-seat Italian cigar den housed in a double-wide trailer on a dirt hillside corner” in Valparaiso, Florida. But while invigorating, she realizes that her role as a restaurant server with sights set on a career in the industry might be incompatible with her other roles: spouse to John and mother of two.
