First Ladies and Their Husbands New

Before Facebook, Twitter, or the National Enquirer, First Ladies were the most well-known women in the country during their husband's term in office. They were married to the most powerful man in the country and, in the last 100 years, the leader of the most powerful country in the world. We are familiar with their public face, but what about their private lives-their upbringing; their marriages; their children? What went on behind closed doors and out of the public view? Discuss some of the most interesting of these unique ladies and their effect on their husbands' lives and legacies both before and during the presidency. The course will explore the evolution of women's inclusion in public life and affairs from the 18th century through the 21st century. The class will have an abundance of opinions as well as facts, so class participation and exchange of ideas is encouraged and welcomed.
