First Ladies As Influence Makers Historians talked about first ladies through history, exploring how the role has evolved. Topics included the move from solely traditional female activities centered on home and family to activism on behalf of important issues, and the transition of first ladies from public life back to private citizen.

“First Ladies as Influence Makers” was a panel at “America’s First Ladies: An Enduring Legacy Symposium” held at the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum to commemorate the 95th anniversary of the birth of first lady Betty Ford. It was part of the Legacies of America’s First Ladies Conferences series held at various presidential libraries. close
