First Ladies: An Adventure in Glamour, Guts & Gumption
The purpose of the presentation is to educate and entertain participants about the personalities and adventures of the women who became the First Ladies of the United States. Who were they really? What made them tick? Did they love or loathe their role? Did they sink or swim navigating the complexities of politics, protocol and publicity, whether they did so willingly or not?
The presentation is designed to be lively, humorous and engaging by weaving historical and modern events and facts about First Ladies to understand and appreciate the important role they play, starting with Martha Washington.
Personal anecdotes as a Licensed DC Guide leading tours in DC will be judiciously used to enhance the First Lady experience.
