Overview

Whether editing speeches and appearing on the campaign trail, presiding over White House renovations and social events, championing important causes, or functioning as the president’s most trusted adviser, first ladies have made significant contributions to the heads-of-state’s careers and to the nation. Yet, the accomplishments of those who have acted as the power behind the presidency have gone largely unreported and under-appreciated. Systematically profiling six first ladies, Professor Watson will take a careful and illuminating look at some of the women who have served the United States.
