First Ladies: Style of Influence
Looking for something cultural to do during ALL THIS RAIN??
Head over to the George Bush Library and get a sneak peak of the roles the first ladies take behind the scenes! Open daily 9a- 5p!
Running through October 1, “First Ladies: Style of Influence” examines how the role of the first lady has evolved over time, and how first ladies have used their position to advance diplomacy and other social, cultural, and political initiatives.
The impact of first ladies, including Laura Bush, Barbara Bush, Jackie Kennedy, Dolley Madison, Michelle Obama, and Eleanor Roosevelt, will be viewed through themes presented in the Bush Institute’s landmark research report, A Role Without a Rulebook: The Influence and Leadership of Global First Ladies. Visitors will explore how American first ladies have served as hostess, teammate, champion, and policy advocate, all within the context of the changing American political and cultural landscape.
