Lead: Woodrow Wilson considered the women with whom he shared the White House true partners in life and policy.

                Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

                Content:  Wilson’s views about women were reflective of the era in which he grew up - progressive for his day, but hardly acceptable to late twentieth century sensibilities. He enjoyed the company of women and did not hesitate to establish strong intellectual relationships with women outside his marriages. In a time when other men would retire for after dinner conversation with their fellows, Wilson preferred the company of cultivated women. He viewed their intellect, while stimulating, as reflective, not quite up to the rigorous standards of the male gender.
