The history of women running for president in the United States spans 140 years, but only in the last five years has a female candidate been taken seriously as a viable contender or come within reach of a major party nomination. Exploring these stories will require visitors to reckon with complicated questions regarding our political system and values. The exhibit will reflect the many experiences of women inclusive of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability and gender identity. Furthermore, as it is important to examine the present by looking at issues of the past, we will explore how current issues such as how gender bias is connected to the stories of the past such as the Civil Rights Act, the right to own property or vote.

National First Ladies Library, 205 Market Avenue South, Canton, OH 44702
First Ladies have played an important role in the campaigns of their husbands since the early presidential elections. That role has, however, evolved as women slowly became accepted into the political arena over time. The exhibit examines the changing role of a potential first lady in forms of campaigning technique and motives; the growing freedom to sway public opinion, give voice to causes, personal opinions, and political advocacy.
