Book excerpt: First Women by Kate Andersen Brower | Summary & Analysis Preview: Kate Andersen Brower’s First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies examines how women from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama have negotiated the personal and political challenges of being married to the president of the United States. The women who have served as first lady in the modern era have been very different. Jackie Kennedy was a style icon; Lady Bird Johnson was adamantly not one. Nancy Reagan was proud to give up her career in acting in order to support her husband’s ambitions; Hillary Clinton extended her own legal and political career by working in Bill Clinton’s administration. Rosalynn Carter liked attending cabinet meetings and being in the thick of politics; Michelle Obama has mostly disliked her time in the White House and has been waiting eagerly to return to civilian life. For all their differences, the first ladies share common experiences… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
