This Presidents Day, we celebrate the men who have led the country since its founding, through peace, war, prosperity, and poverty. But all but one US presidents have been married — James Buchanan is the exception — and several of those women, particularly within the past 100 years or so, have had fascinating careers of their own. That’s first lady Betty Ford as a professional dancer in 1942 above, for example. We’re hoping for a day when we can assemble a list of first husbands with careers of their own, too. But in the meantime, here are seven working first ladies with fascinating jobs.
