A woman’s mind

Lucy Hayes, whose husband was president of the United States from 1877-1881, was the first presidential spouse to earn a college degree. She was hailed as a “new woman”—although she didn’t support women’s suffrage.

“A woman’s mind is as strong as a man’s…equal in all things, superior in some,” she once said.

Hayes is one of the First Ladies featured in an exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas.
