Summary:
What do you want to be when you grow up? Can a girl be a the president? What about a congress woman or the person in charge or National Security? Women have had huge influences in US politics for centuries and they will be for centuries to come. Learn about some of the most influential right here.

Personal Response:
This book turned out to be way more than I first expected! I first thought it would be about all of the First Ladies until after I noticed that they did not start with Mrs. Washington and forgot countless others. This book is about way more than First Ladies; it's about powerful women throughout history.

Classroom Use:
This is a great book to lead into a research segment on powerful women in political history. After reading this book, I will assign students to choose one of the ladies mentioned in this book and conduct further research on her.
