"You make history, We'll make dinner." —Colonel Harland Sanders

Before Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, there was Colonel Harland Sanders, a seminal foremother of the feminist movement.

On September 9, 1890, Colonel Harland Sanders was born in the small town of Henryville, Indiana. He was the oldest of three children. When he was five years old, his father passed away, and so The Colonel had to raise his younger brother and sister while his mother worked in the factory. (Colonel, I’m depending on you, son, to pull the family through. My son, it’s up to you). And so at five years old, The Colonel learned to cook. At the age of seven, he made his first loaf of bread from scratch, and was so proud of himself, he walked three miles down a dirt road to deliver it to his momma.

And so at an early age, The Colonel began a life of serving women. The more you love chicken, the more you love women. The Colonel remembered how tired his mother was, after a long day at the factory. But with his Bucket of Chicken, his “Sunday Dinner, Seven Days a Week,” he freed her from the tyranny of the kitchen. When you can make chicken this good, why cook?
