Wild Detectives

All month long, the Wild Detectives has been hosting Women Galore, a month of programming featuring female artists, writers, musicians, actors and other creative pros. This weekend, the conversation turns to food, with several heavy-hitters in the Dallas food scene sharing their perspectives on working in an industry that many people feel is still male-dominated. 

On Sunday night's panel: Meaders Ozarow of Empire Baking, Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate and Misti Norris of Small Brewpub, all of whom are serious forces to be reckoned with — and who also happen to be women. I'll be moderating the panel to make sure we spend ample time talking about shoes what challenges remain for women in this industry, along with common misconceptions about what it's like being a female in the Dallas food scene. 

It's not easy to have these discussions. Many women in this (and every) industry roll their eyes at questions like "What's it like to be a woman working with dudes???!???" or "Having a vagina's pretty rough, right?!!!" because, frankly, we're just working to get shit done just like everyone else, gender be damned. But obviously we still have work to do if we're going to ensure that everyone in this industry (not just women) is working on a level playing field. Join us on Sunday evening for a cocktail as we hash things out.

Women from the Kitchen, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Wild Detectives, 314 W. 8th St. Free.
