Lauren Wright: The Changing Role of the First Spouse

Where: The Public Room, Seattle Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave
Cost: $5; buy tickets here

On the eve of an historic election, in which we may see our country’s first “first man,” (or would he be the “first gentleman”?) White House expert Lauren A. Wright presents On Behalf of the President, examining the evolution of the role of first lady over the last several decades. With a focus on the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations, Wright identifies, explains, and measures the impact of the expanding role of presidential spouses in White House and presidential campaign strategies. Using the first ladies’ public speeches and communications, as well as interviews with White House staff members, journalists, and strategists, Wright asserts that first ladies have become as influential in American politics as elected officials.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
