Politicians are fond of talking about our country's "founding fathers" and what they envisioned for the country.
The women standing in the shadows of those men had dreams and visions, too. And some of them even stepped out of the shadows to help guide the young country forward.
Cokie Roberts of NPR fame wrote of them in the book Founding Mothers and followed that with a picture book for children, Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies.
Roberts was our guest three years ago; we return to that interview here.
