Event Details


Although America has yet to elect a woman to the presidency, many women have played important parts in shaping previous presidential administrations and in changing the roles and the perception of women in politics. As part of New-York Historical's series Celebrating the 19th Amendment: 90 Years, this program looks back at the many influential and important women in the history of America's highest elected office, from political candidates and cabinet members to First Ladies and family members.
