Betty Ford: A FLOTUS With Power
Known for her advocacy of the Equal Rights Amendment, Betty Ford often spoke her mind freely, despite the fact that her political beliefs did not always align with her husband's.
On Wednesday's Up to Date, author John Robert Greene, author of Betty Ford: Candor and Courage in the White House, takes a deeper look at this controversial woman who remains one of history's most outspoken and influential first ladies.
HEAR MORE: John Robert Greene will speak about his book at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 19th at the Kansas City Public Library Plaza Branch as part of the library's Beyond the Gowns: First Ladies series. This series is co-sponsored by KCUR. Admission is free.
