Dr. Jill Biden, A Working First Lady
Part history and part analysis of current events, this lecture places Biden into the larger context of First Lady activism. It explores how, simply through biography, Biden will be a path-breaking First Lady. She will be the first First Lady to hold a doctoral degree, and, if she continues to teach in her community college job, she will also be the first First Lady to pursue paid employment during her husband’s presidency. After sketching out Biden’s biography and stated aims for her tenure as First Lady, the lecture will consider some past First Ladies who paved the way for Biden. Finally, the lecture considers what is and is not fair game for criticizing First Ladies.
