A roundtable discussion and reception follow. Panelists include Drs. Dean Kotlowski and Kara French of SU’s History Department. They discuss the progression of women as political actors from the age of Madison to the present.

The documentary follows Madison as she establishes the role of the president’s wife, becoming arguably the first modern First Lady. She was a pivotal player in the early days of the American Republic, surviving two wars and maintaining friendships with several prominent Americans, including the first 12 presidents.
