We Need To Talk About Marilyn Quayle

Marilyn Quayle’s untheatrical professionalism and unapologetically prickly personality showed a feminine strength from another era.

Back in February I wrote an article about our first Second Gentleman, Doug Emhoff, husband of VP Kamala Harris. I spoke about past Second Ladies and how they occupied a usually forgettable role which has only sparked interest recently because now for the first time in US history the Vice President’s spouse is a man.

Now, however, I want to talk about a Second Lady from the past.
