Summary
"Looking at the personal interaction between each first lady from Martha Washington to Laura Bush and the mass media of her day, Maurine H. Beasley traces the growth of the institution of the first lady as a part of the American political system. Her work shows how media coverage of first ladies, often limited by stereotypical ideas about women, has not adequately reflected the importance of their role."--Jacket
