First Lady of the United States is the unofficial title of the hostess of the White House. Because this position is traditionally filled by the wife of the President of the United States, the title is sometimes taken to apply only to the wife of a sitting President. However, several women other than wives of Presidents have served as First Lady, as when the President was a bachelor or widower, or when the wife of the President was unable to fulfill the duties of the First Lady herself. In these cases, the position has been filled by a female relative or friend of the President. Image File history File linksMetadata Four_first_ladies. ...

Role of the First Lady

Former First Ladies Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter and Nancy Reagan, as well as the current First Lady at that time, Barbara Bush, attend the opening of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California in 1991.

The first lady is not an elected position, carries no official duties, and brings no salary. Nonetheless, she attends many official ceremonies and functions of state either along with or in place of the President. There is a strict taboo against the First Lady holding outside employment while occupying the office [3]. The first lady frequently participates in humanitarian and charitable work; over the course of the 20th century it became increasingly common for first ladies to select specific causes to promote, usually ones that are not politically divisive. It is common for the first lady to hire a staff to support these activities. Additionally, many have taken an active role in campaigning for the President with whom they are associated. Hillary Rodham Clinton took the role one step further when she was, for a time, given a formal job in the Clinton administration to develop reforms to the health care system; at the end of her husband's administration she was elected in her own right to represent New York in the U.S. Senate, yet another "first" for a first lady.
