Back to school with Art Historian Beth Merfish

It still feels like summer, but school is starting (or has already begun) in many parts of the country! For the next few weeks, Girls Like You and Me will be sharing the stories of women in education. They'll be sharing what their jobs involve both inside and outside the classroom. 

Today, we're featuring Beth Merfish, who is an assistant professor of art history in Houston, Texas. Beth talked to us about how her lifelong love of learning about people and how they live, what the study of art history is and how she fell in love with it, her work in political activism to give everyone a voice, and how asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness.
