Many remarkable mothers have given birth to American presidents, and as a result, helped shape the course of history through their relationships. Although America has yet to elect a female President, many women have played important parts in shaping presidential administrations and in changing the roles and the perceptions of women in politics. To celebrate the centennial of the Women’s Suffrage Parade of 1913, four experts discuss past First Mothers who have influenced a nation.
