Is there any American female leader that wouldn't feel ridiculous?

    As title says. I tried to invent female rulers for main civs and I mostly succeed - in most cases even if there was no decent independent female ruler, there was a regular queen or national hero feeling good enough to be a leader. But in America's case I feel completely lost.

    Anybody has any idea?

    This list is probably as close as you can get to not being ridiculous.

    I would argue that Abigail Adams is the best option with Dolley Madison being second and that's about as far as I would go.

    Maybe Rebecca Latimer Felton, the first woman Senator? But that would still feel weird, because she actually served as Senator for like a day.

    We need an aethnic mush of unparalleled hotness to represent America's diversity and sex appeal.

    We need a timeless fixture who has been around for most of America's existence and who embodies the American spirit of reinvention.

    We need a HBIC who is the voice of the people and who already owns 51% of this company.

    We need Cher.

    Some civil rights leader who actually had a massive impact on American Politics could serve? Lucy Stone, Sojourner Truth or Susan B. Anthony, perhaps?

    Personally I wouldn't go there though. If the shoe don't fit, don't wear it.

    That's what I was going to say. Eleanor Roosevelt as UN Ambassador has a small case. Edith Wilson took on the role of Presidential "steward," but that was a brief period of time with historians questioning how much influence she had beyond the role of Chief of Staff.

    That's probably why she was chosen as a leader in Civ 2 though she was far from the worst.

    I hate to say it but had Hillary been elected she would have been the clear frontrunner. Not because she was the first woman or current prez, but because she had also spent 8 years as first lady and another 4 as secretary of state. That's more years in power than most presidents get, and all before she even (almost) took the presidency.

    The only two women who come close to that unfortunately don't compare. We've never had a female VP. The only other secretary Allbright was never first lady so was never a "queen consort" figurehead. And although Nancy Pelosi is the only woman to hold Speaker of the House, that's not really what we think of as leader material. We've never had a female Senate majority leader.

    America...kind of sucks. As in prefers sucking the ****s of old men more than any modern nation this side of totalitarianism.
