First Ladies First: Women in the White House

March 25 2014
Share First Ladies First: Women in the White House

First Ladies constitute the original First Wives’ Club. They always know what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes in the highest echelon of American government. The hope of reading some inside dirt is what makes their memoirs so fascinating — how they were changed by the presidency? And what happens after they leave the White House? Do they want a quiet life, or do they seek a larger role in public service? This collection reflects our own fascination with First Ladies and their incredible individual achievements.

Living History
by Hillary Rodham Clinton

Clinton writes with candor, humor and passion about her upbringing in suburban, middle-class America in the 1950s and her transformation from Goldwater Girl to student activist to controversial First Lady.
