The Ritual of the First Lady: Prisoner or Platform?
Thursday, January 10, 2019, 1:30 PM until 2:30 PM
Little Falls Library
5501 Massachusetts Avenue
Bethesda, MD 20816
In her presentation, Maureen Beasleywill assess what makes a great first lady, whether she is a prisoner of societal expectations, and what opportunities she is given to use the White House as a platform to gain public attention for social issues. Ms. Beasley will analyze efforts by historians to rank First Ladies and will give you an opportunity to express your own opinion.
