Revealing the Hidden History of Edith Bolling Wilson in the Oval Office.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2016 -- If Hillary Clinton is elected, she won't necessarily be our first woman president. Months before women won the right to vote, a woman was secretly running the Executive Office. Few know the hidden history of Edith Bolling Wilson's presidency – until now. Author William Hazelgrove provides an engaging portrait of the woman who became the acting president of the United States in his new book Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson (October 17; Regnery Publishing; 978-1-62157-475-0; $29.99).
Assuming the authority of the Oval Office after President Woodrow Wilson suffered a debilitating stroke, Edith's presence was quietly acknowledged in D.C. circles at the time, but since then her legacy has largely been forgotten.
A senator during her time called her "the Presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man." Now, the full history of America's first female president is finally revealed.
In Madam President you'll discover:
- Who America's real first female president was
- How Edith Bolling Wilson undertook the office of the president
- Why Edith Bolling Wilson's presidency was kept secret
- Why the history of America's first female president is so significant in 2016
- What Edith Bolling Wilson's presidency did to lay the groundwork for women in government
