First Ladies - First Ladies

Publisher: Future Publishing Ltd Country of origin: GB

Description

Discover the lives of the incredible people who have served their country as First Lady of the United States. For more than 200 years, the wives of Presidents have been thrust into the spotlight on the world stage. While the First Lady is unelected and has no official powers, she has the ear of President and is his closest confidante. Some First Ladies have been happy just to play the perfect hostess, but others – such as Abigail Adams or Eleanor Roosevelt – made sure their voices were heard. Many First Ladies remain popular long after their husbands have left office, whether it be for their activism, careers, or even their fashion. The likes of Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama were catapulted to celebrity status, while Hillary Clinton went on to become a political powerhouse in her own right. This book reveals the challenges and accomplishments of America’s most influential First Ladies, from Martha Washington to Melania Trump.
