*First Ladies and Women's Rights

Part I - Daughters of the Enlightenment
Event detail
In the first installment of this series, Patricia Southard and Elizabeth Thacker-Estrada present an overview of U.S. First Ladies from Martha Washington (tenure 1789-1797) to Sarah Polk (tenure 1845-1849) and their relationship to women's rights.  This discussion will include celebrated aristocratic and revolutionary founding mothers Abigail Adams (tenure 1797-1801) and Dolley Madison (tenure 1809-1817) as well as lesser known and proxy first ladies of the “Common Man” era of Jacksonian Democracy.  The talk will conclude with a glimpse of First Ladies since the mid-nineteenth century who held differing opinions on women’s rights as well as the role of women, which reflected the views of the women of their eras.
