Jill Biden reformula o papel da Primeira Dama

By Jordi Bou

January 20, 2021 - Jill Biden vai fazer história ao ser a primeira Primeira Dama a manter um emprego enquanto na Casa Branca.A Dra. Biden, que detém dois mestrados e um doutoramentoem educação, tenciona continuar a ensinar inglês numa faculdade da Virgínia.

First ladies have often been expected to sacrifice their careers to perform ceremonial tasks.

But Biden announced from the get-go that she would continue her career as a community college professor, regardless of whether her husband was elected president. She had already broken the mould by maintaining her career while he was vice president.

Between 1993 and 2017, all of the first ladies had advanced degrees. Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton are lawyers, and Laura Bush has a master’s in library science. But none of them maintained a career while in the White House.

Jill Biden’s decision to do so will push the role of first lady into the 21st century by keeping her full-time job as a professor.
