The was first panel from a daylong symposium co-hosted by American University’s First Ladies Initiative and the White House Historical Association, which provided this video.

The conversation focused on changing ideas about gender, and how first ladies exercised power even before women had the vote. We heard, in particular, about Martha Washington’s management of her slaves, Abigail Adams' political interests, and the messages that first lady portraits conveyed long before photographs and television. The program began with introductory remarks, including an appearance by first lady Jill Biden. close
